Detailed Product Description

London, 1984, 1st UK edition. 158 pp. Original brown cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

The preposterous, but just possible, adventures of the doctor and his two hapless companions provide a hilariously satisfying commentary on today's mountain scene. In them we meet the whole bizarre spectrum of our contemporary hill population: not only the ''hard men'' and hill walkers, but a wide supporting cast of skiers, cavers, birdwatchers, botanizers, deerstalkers, developers, dogs, flies, mountain rescuers and the rest, including the local inhabitants and the U.S. Navy.

These stories, first appearing in climbing journals and anthologies, are now recognized as classics of wit and humor. This book brings them together for the first time and includes several hitherto unpublished. It will appeal not only to rock-men, ice-men, ramblers and Munro-baggers, but to everyone interested in the pleasures (and enjoyable pains) of the Great Outdoors.
