Herbert George Wells was perhaps best known as the author of such classic works of science fiction as The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds. But it was in his short stories, written when he was a young man embarking on a literary career, that he first explored the enormous potential of the scientific discoveries of the day. He described his stories as "a miscellany of inventions", yet his enthusiasm for science was tempered by an awareness of its horrying destructive powers and the threat it could pose to the human race.

A consummate storyteller, he made fantastic creatures and machines entirely believeable, and by placing ordinary men and women in extraordinary situations, he explored what it means to be alive in a century of rapid scientific progress. "Little Mother Up the Morderberg" is a humorous tale about a mother and son trekking to the top of a mountain.
