Detailed Product Description

Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1981, 1st US edition. 226 pp, b/w photos, maps. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

Paddy Sherman is well known as a western Canadian publisher, and perhaps even better known as a skilled mountain climber. Equally impressive, however, are Shermans vocations as an insatiably curious student of human nature, and a gifted and colorful reporter on everything that crosses his path from avalanches to Peruvian bureaucrats. Climbs of Huascaran, McKinley, Aconcagua, Mt. Kenya, etc.

All of these talents contribute to the exhilaration of Expedition to Nowhere, a fascinating account of Shermans travels in Peru, Kenya, Alaska, Tanzania, Argentina, Bolivia and, for good measure, British Columbia and the Yukon.

This is a chronicle of the challenges of climbing in faraway places on some of the worlds highest mountains. For the climber and the non-climber, here are descriptions of the places and the peaks and the problems-storms, ice, rock, avalanches and broken-down buses. It is not a saga of superheroes struggling up impossible cliffs, but of a happy bunch of alpine warriors who greatly enjoy difficult places, and to whom the summit is the frosting on the cake of simply being there.
