The Guardian of Snowdonia Immortalised in Memoir

The memoir of feisty campaigner and conservationist, Esmé Kirby, has been launched this week, marking the 15th anniversary of her death.

Esmé Kirby was the heroine of 'I Bought a Mountain', the bestselling story of 23-year-old newcomers taking on a Snowdonia sheep farm, despite having no farm experience. The book, written by Esmé's first husband Thomas Firbank, was published in 1940 and told of the couple's life at Dyffryn in Capel Curig.
