Title page of Jones Climbing in North America signed by 19 great American climbers. 

John Sherman, Climbing magazine:

Climbing in North America embodies that literary ideal - the sense of history come alive. Each historical climbing vignette in the book is lively, action packed, and rich in detail. Chris Jones is the rare author - in any genre - who manages to tell a great story without getting in the way of it.
