Detailed Product Description

This copy is SIGNED AND NUMBERED, No 79 of 100 copies specially bound in a superior cloth, with dust jacket, and SIGNED by both authors, Dave Brown and Ian Mitchell.

Winner of the 1991 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature

UK, Ernest Press, 1991, 1st UK edition. 185 pp, maps, ills. Where is Fishgut Mac now? And how did Desperate Dan get started on the hill? Get the answers, along with tales of the Auld Crowd and the unexpurgated adventures of Erchie Boomer in this book by the authors of Mountain Days and Bothy Nights. Utterly new condition, both book and dust jacket. Scarce.

Fed up with anemic books about mountains, about being poor and happy and mystical fulfillment? Then this is the book for you, tearing the veil from the culture clashes and conflicts on the hills. Have stripey pants and Munro-bagging consigned the Great Proletarian Revolution to history? What happens if you go in search of the American Dream in Colorado, or Celtic Twilight in the Cuillin? How do Scots and English interact on the hill? And do the mountains alter the pattern of male-female sexual behavior?

This book argues that to try and escape all the tensions and contradictions of society, in the mountains, is an impossible task. But it also seeks to answer the question of motivation in an attempt to explain the addiction of the hills. This book IS different.
