Detailed Product Description
NOW IN STOCK!

To the surprise and delight of us in the world of climbing, a new biography of Yvon Chouinard has just been published.  It was written by a close friend of Yvon's, and Chouinard's wife Malinda feels that he knew the inner Yvon better than anybody.

There is nobody in climbing as remarkable as Yvon Chouinard. Besides being part of the small group of Yosemite climbers in the 1960s who invented so much of the gear, techniques and ethical standards that now are widely accepted worldwide, he is also an unusual businessman, incredibly successful and socially conscious.

Yvon Chouinard is now officially a billionaire according to Forbes magazine. To discover what drives this man, as well as what his life has really been like, this is a book most climbers are looking forward to reading.

2017, 1st edition.  290 pp, b/w illustrations. “Undersized, under educated and undaunted'' — Yvon Chouinard was an original hippie pursuing ‘objective dangers’.

Flirting with natural forces of calamity was ambrosia, staring death in the eye on hellish mountains, lethal surf and uncharted rivers—surviving the longest fall ever recorded and a killer Himalayan avalanche. His innovations have saved countless lives. Few know how his wife Malinda converted his tinkering into Patagonia Clothing Company as well as an environmental force.

The author, William Stratton, a retired TV screenwriter, was his next door neighbor, and for almost 15 years the two shared waves and mountains in mutual determination to not let work interfere with life. Chouinard's wife, Malinda, goaded the author into writing this biography, convinced that no one knew Yvon better. New hardcover with Dust Jacket.

This unusual book has three titles:  the title on the book cover and dust jacket is YVON CHOUINARD: GOING HIS WAY

The title on the title page (the official title) and on the top of every page is: YVON CHOUINARD: LIFE ON THE EDGE

The title that was announced several years ago is: YVON CHOUINARD: UNREFLECTING AUDACITY
