WE ASPIRED: THE LAST INNOCENT AMERICANS Sinclair Paperback
By Sinclair, Pete
Price: $18.00


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
2004, 2nd edition. 246 pp. An acclaimed book of Teton mountaineering is now back in print. The golden age of American climbing lasted a mere dozen years, during which it burgeoned in several centers, one of them the Tetons. Sinclair's (English, Evergreen State Coll.) account is an autobiographical history of that time and place.
 
The book is worth considering for purchase for several reasons. First, as the work of a literate, intelligent writer, it explains more clearly than any other recent mountaineering book why climbers climb. Also, it deals with a decade, 1959-69, when all serious climbers knew each other. Finally, it reports on one aspect of climbing that no other book does: mountain rescue. Paperback.
