Detailed Product Description

Seattle, 2000, 1st edition. 217 pp. Paperback. Near Fine to Fine.

Childs has spent his life as a mountain guide, and presents a well written, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, collection of articles on his many experiences in the peaks. 

A meditative, humorous, and ultimately inspiring collection of stories about life amid the mountains.

'Just about everything worthwhile I have gotten out of this world has somehow been connected to mountains.' So observes Geof Childs in the introduction to Stone Palaces, a collection of stories inspired by life lived outside the rules. Eschewing an office career and material wealth in favor of a home in the mountains and worldwide adventure, Childs writes insightfully about the contradictions of climbing-its 'brilliant triviality and sublime uselessness,' its beauty and its hardships.

Some of his stories are funny, some are sad, and some are straightforward, factual reporting. Most are about climbing and the people who do it, though there's a tale about war and one about sailing stormy waters. All convey the 'select disquiet' that comes from seeking adventure, in the mountains and in life.
