Detailed Product Description

Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1999/2000, 1st US edition or 2nd printing. 208 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

SIGNED or INSCRIBED by Paul Pritchard (as "P.P.")


Paul Pritchard was one of the world's great climbers until a falling rock hit him and caused brain damage and paralysis. This is his inspiring story of recovery and coping with a new life. Winner of the 1999 Boardman Tasker Prize.

After winning the 1997 Boardman Tasker Award for his first book, Deep Play, climber Paul Pritchard used the prize money to kick off a world climbing tour in Tasmania, on a slender sea stack called the Totem Pole. However, a chance rockfall inflicted such terrible head injuries that Pritchard spent the next year in and out of hospitals, relearning basic thinking processes and muscle movements.

This insightful, firsthand chronicle of the accident and its aftermath portrays the physical and emotional ordeal of Pritchard's recovery. He weaves together accounts of earlier climbs, his changed relationships with family and friends and his girlfriend, Celia, and details about the rescue operation itself. And with an unpitying voice, Pritchard describes his return to the accident scene with a film crew to watch some of his friends complete the climb that changed his life.
