Detailed Product Description
California, 2009, 1st edition. 226 pages, 20+ photos, some color, illustrations, appendix, glossary, bibliography. This is the first volume of the much-anticipated autobiographical series by American climbing legend Royal Robbins. Robbins' adventurous life story stands as a beacon of inspiration to those who ever pondered how to reach higher by reaching within. Paperback with pictorial cover; Fine. There is no hardcover of this title.  

In Volume One, To Be Brave, Robbins holds the reader breathless with tales of adventure. Climb step by step with Robbins on his historic solo ascent of Yosemite's Leaning Tower. Discover how the young Robbins transformed himself into the master climber that he is today. 

Richly entertaining and personal, To Be Brave, the first volume of Robbins' life story, holds the reader breathless with tales of adventure. But for Robbins, the real adventure is the inner one. By focusing on the minds, emotions and spirits of those involved, he relates climbing escapades in terms everyone can understand.
 
Royal Robbins' accomplishments as rock climber and adventurer are legendary. An early advocate of boltless, pitonless clean climbing, he did much to transform the climbing culture to minimize the human impact on the vertical wilderness and protect its natural features. As a rock-climbing pioneer, he broke through existing standards to create wholly new skill and difficulty levels. In the 50's, 60's and into the 70's, Robbins established one daring new climb after another, among them many revered classics on Yosemite's Half Dome and El Capitan.
 
Robbins has written two seminal books, Basic Rockcraft and Advanced Rockcraft, which showcased his skill and climbing ethic and inspired a whole new generation of climbers. Combined, the two books have sold over 400,000 copies. He is also the subject of a biography, Spirit of the Age, written by Pat Ament. Richly entertaining and personal, To Be Brave, the first volume of Robbins' life story, holds the reader breathless with tales of adventure.

But for Robbins, the real adventure is the inner one. By focusing upon the minds, emotions, and spirits of those involved, he relates climbing escapades in terms everyone can understand.
