Detailed Product Description
London, 1983, 1st edition. 688 pp, 33 color and b/w plates, b/w illustrations. Blue cloth Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.  

A now classic collection of one hundred mountaineering articles. This entertaining anthology joins the highly popular The Games Climbers Play as another confirmation of the diversity, humor, irony, drama and quality of the best mountaineering writing. The selection, which is deliberately international in character, contains items drawn from books, journals, newsletters and magazines. With Cartoons by Sheridan Anderson
 
It features the writings of well known literary luminaries - W.H. Murray, Eric Shipton, Claude Schuster, Wilfrid Noyce, H.W. Tilman, John Menlove Edwards, Ronald Clark, Arnold Lunn, Harold Drasdo, Tom Patey and Robin Smith. 

In addition more contemporary work by Reinhold Messner, Dougal Haston, Jim Bridwell, Ron Fawcett, Royal Robbins, Galen Rowell, Chris Bonington, Don Whillans, James Morris, Don Lauria, Warren Harding, Alex MacIntyre, G.W. Young, Willi Unsoeld, Lionel Terray, Henry Barber, John Gill, Doug Robinson, Ed Drummond, Anne Sauvy, David Roberts, Greg Child, Rick Sylvester, Georges Bettembourg, Kim Carrigan, Pat Littlejohn, Michael Tobias, Mick Fowler, John Long, Max Jones, John Roskelley, Arlene Blum, Pat Ament and John Barry provides a powerful reaffirmation that the literary side of the sport remains strong.
 
Sheridan Anderson's cartoons again add irony to the text. An exhilarating sense of frenetic, free-wheeling activity emerges from the book. In it the climbing community holds up a mirror to itself - to its laughter, its humanity, its ambitions, its controversies, wisdoms and joys.
