Detailed Product Description
Colorado, Chockstone Press, 1989, 1st edition. 177 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. This appears to be the only hardcover book published by Chockstone Press, who mostly published climbing guidebooks.

Long's first book of adventure stories, and the only one to appear in hardcover. From Borneo and Yosemite, Baffin Island and Venezuela, John Long has experienced a world of adventure travel unusual for its intensity.
 
A legendary performer from the world of rock climbing, he has tangled with deeply secluded and watery jungle caves, remote thawing ice flows, and solo climbs high over a desert hungry for his failure. In addition, Long has come to know a class of adventurers as avid as himself and been privy to record their stories. Wild and fresh, these adventures are written in a style as powerful, decisive, and engaging as Long himself.
