Detailed Product Description

California, University of California Press, 1976, 1st edition. 392 pp, illustrated with b/w plates. Navy cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Book is fine. DJ is price clipped, otherwise Fine condition.

This book was a gift twice, both in 1976. Chris Jones wrote: ''For John and LaRee Caughran -- Chris Jones.'' 

Then ''And now on to Mark from John and LaRee. Christmas 1976.'

Climbing in North America is the definitive history of mountaineering in the United States and Canada from the earliest days of the sport to the 1970s. Thoroughly researched; the author is a pioneering climber who has put up routes on three continents. Each chapter includes a detailed reference section for further reading. 

Chapters include: Conrad Kain and Albert MacCarthy; Mount Alberta; Robert Underhill and Jack Durrance; The Sierrans; Mount Waddington; Mount McKinley; El Capitan; and The Granite Crucible (on Yosemite).

From the pioneering climbs of the nineteenth-century to the big walls of Yosemite, Climbing in North America celebrates the climbers and their routes, peaks and adventures, bringing them to life through anecdotes and historic black and white photos. It's a must for every mountaineers' library. - 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.
