At the heart of the collection lies the breathtaking sequence 'Black Rocks', dedicated to Alison Hargreaves, the British climber who perished at the face of K2.These are distinctive and unforgettable poems of passion and precipices, of edges and extremes.No Map Could Show Them confirms Helen's position as one of the finest young poets at work today.
