Detailed Product Description





SIGNED by Norman Clyde on front free end paper,

"4-25-70   Big Pine,  Calif, Norman Clyde."

Norman Clyde signatures are scarce, the few we find were done in the last years of his life.

California, 1966, 2nd printing. 79 pp, 11 photos, 5 maps. This book was published only as a paperback, condition is Fine.

La Siesta Press in Glendale CA was the first publisher to gather Norman Clyde's writings from the various magazines and club bulletins he wrote for, mostly between 1927 and 1942. These describe some of his first ascents in the Sierra, including the East Face of Mt Whitney.

Norman Clyde, 1885 1972, was a mountaineer, mountain guide, freelance writer, nature photographer and self-trained naturalist. He is known for achieving over 130 first ascents, many in California's Sierra Nevada and Montana's Glacier National Park. He also set a speed climbing record on California's Mount Shasta in 1923. The Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley has 1467 articles written by Clyde in its archives.
