Detailed Product Description

San Francisco, Sierra Club, 1980. 688 pp, b/w photos. Paperback. Cover may be slightly soiled and/or worn. Overall Very Good to Near Fine.

A wonderful selection of mountaineering writings from both sides of the Atlantic. Considered to be the finest modern anthology of mountaineering writing, to be enjoyed by all who enjoy the literature at its best. Anthology of mountaineering writing traces the 'games' climbers play, from the various types of climbing to the extra-mural activities of the climbers; read from the world's most famous climbers. New Paperback.

'Every sport and pastime evolves and changes and to some extent reflects the preoccupations and mores of the times. Certain factors remain constant and immutable but each generation or so has its own voice and character. Anyone who wants to know what contemporary climbers, that is the most active and involved exponents are like, will find this well-chosen anthology most interesting and revealing.
 
Ken Wilson set himself the task of encapsulating the attitudes and achievements of his times. Therefore, the anthology concentrates on writing published in the last 20 years. But very wisely he has included earlier passages and older authors such as David Cox, Kevin Fitzgerald, Frank Smythe, Menlove Edwards and Douglas Busk.
 
These passages provide elements of continuity and contrast that are both necessary and complementary. And his final essay 'Beginnings' by Colin Kirkus is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it was written in 1941. - Michael Ward, Alpine Journal 1980, p. 248-249
