Detailed Product Description
Western Eye Press, Sedona AZ, 2015. 227 pp, b/w photos. Softcover. Fine.

Dick Dorworth was a member of the 1968 Patagonia "Fun Hogs" expedition, together with Yvon Chouinard, Chris Jones, Douglas Tompkins, and Lito Tejada-Flores, who made the third ascent of Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia in 1968. Footage of the expedition was made into an adventure film, Mountain of Storms (also known as Fitzroy), which also includes footage of Dorworth's earlier speed skiing record set at Portillo, Chile, some time before the expedition and brief remarks by him about this achievement.

This book is a collection of intensely personal stories of climbing, rock climbing and alpinism, around the world, by one of America's best mountain writers. Dorworth also includes portraits and profiles of some of the most important American climbers of recent times, and a series of meditations and reflections on the climbing life. Finally, the book concludes with two imaginative works of mountaineering fiction.
