Detailed Product Description

2005, 1st edition. 313 pp, many photos. Hardcover, Dust Jacket, New.

SIGNED by Arlene Blum

'This splendid book is much more than just a 'climbing life.' Arlene Blum has the courage -- and the literary skill -- to aim for new heights. Few such autobiographies have mentioned the fragile relationships that exist among high-level mountaineers, including the sexual conflicts that arise when young women and men get together in the wild. On yet another level, Blum delves into her early life to try to discover what led her to become a first-rate scientist and a pathbreaking mountaineer.'

-- Steve Roper, author of Camp 4: Recollections of a Yosemite Rockclimber and other climbing books.

'Breaking Trail is an inspiring and affecting story of struggle and triumph. It is fluent and highly readable and keeps you turning the pages until the very end.'-- Peter Gillman, co-author of The Wildest Dream: The Biography of George Mallory
