Detailed Product Description
Pennsylvania, Stackpole, 1990, 1st edition. 130 pp, b/w photos. Paperback - only edition. Cover may be a bit faded. Near Fine to Fine. 

Interviews with Robbins, Whittaker, Lynn Hill, Skinner, Bonington, Lowe, Bass, 20+ others. 

The title is itself a summary. Charles Houston, a climber, gives a mature opinion on the lure of the sport in the forward. Then 29 variations of that theme follow in the words of individuals who have made a name in American adventure climbing (c.1940-80). Three of these are women; five are non-Americans. A few younger climbers known for achievements in the newer sport climbing are included. Gardiner gives a considerable amount of biography on each climber as well as their own words.
