Detailed Product Description
UK, 2001, 1st edition. 248 pp. New paperback.

This climbing novel won the Boardman Tasker award in 2001. 

"Hubank's new book, Hazard's Way, is quite simply a masterpiece, ... the finest piece of fictional writing around the subject of mountaineering ever to have been published in this country ..." (Jim Perrin's review in the September 01 issue of 'Climber'.)

A fascinating novel written by Roger Hubank, author of the highly acclaimed North Wall.

As members of the Fell and Rock gather to commemorate the fallen, George Hazard is carried back to Wasdale Head in the years before the First World War. Though greatly changed from what he was, he sees himself as a youth struggling to escape the stifling conformity of family life. On Scafell, Pillar, Gable, in company with the foremost climbers of the day, young Hazard discovers his kinship with a wider world.

Meanwhile, his new friends begin to figure in that inner sanctum of the soul wherein a youth's idea of himself is formed, not as he is, but as he dreams of being. Friends, though, are not always what they seem. And looming ever larger, as the story approaches its climax, is the Pinnacle Face of Scafell. In company with a sinister schoolmaster, a disillusioned hero of the South African war, a Cambridge physicist desperate for success, the young man is drawn into a crisis familiar to all climbers.

In this evocation of the Golden Age of Lakeland climbing Roger Hubank's new novel probes the compelling mythologies of mountaineering to uncover those illusions of heart and mind from which spring the tragedies of human nature.
