Detailed Product Description
Seattle, 1986, 1st edition. 238 pp. A celebrated collection of Roberts' writings. This hardcover is out-of-print and actually quite hard to find. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. May have former owner's gift inscription on FEP.
 
SIGNED/INSCRIBED by David Roberts:
Copy 1: "For Dan - Good Climbing - David November 1996"
Copy 2: "For Dan - May we both have many more great days in the mountains - David Telluride 2004"

This collection of 20 essays and articles on mountaineering and adventure by David Roberts, selected from the published works of two decades, showcases one of the most highly regarded writers in the field. The articles are composed of three types: Adventures (Roberts' own climbs and outings), Profiles (other adventurers), and Reflections (meditative essays about the meaning of the whole business). Roberts ranges the globe (Africa, Alaska, New Guinea) and introduces unique personalities (Reinhold Messner, John Roskelly, Don Sheldon).

He also recounts how his own love of writing and the useless pastime of climbing combined to produce the bread and butter of his career today. Popular with audiences far beyond active mountaineers, Roberts sets himself this challenge: For me, the abiding puzzle of adventure writing lies in keeping, on the one hand, a sense of proportion about the absurdity of most of our antics in the outdoors, while staying alert, on the other, to the majesty of spirit which at their best those antics demonstrate.
