Detailed Product Description

New York, 2000. 248 pp, color photos. New paperback with small remainder mark on bottom edge.

Turner tells memorable stories of his many Teton climbs and around the world, as well as his life in one of the grandest of our National Parks. 

'Finely detailed descriptions of trail life make readers see the specific beauty of remote ranges...Anyone interested in difficult country and the inspiration it provides would do well to read these accounts of climbing, trekking, and thinking.' --Outside magazine 'This is simply stated, a wonderful and utterly engaging book,.' --Jim Harrison, author of Dalva and The Road Home

'Each place must find its muse. The Tetons have found theirs and his name is Jack Turner.' --Terry Tempest Williams, author of Coyote's Canyon

Book Description

Jack Turner grew up with an image of the Tetons engraved in his mind. As a young man, he climbed the peaks of this singular range with basic climbing gear and friends. Later in life, he led treks in India, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Tibet, and Peru, but he always returned to the mountains of his youth: the Tetons. Teewinot is his ode to forty years in the mountains that he loves.

This is a book about a mountain range, its climbs, its weather, and the glory of the wild. It is also about a small group of climbers-nomads who inhabit the Teton Range each summer, and who know it as intimately as it will ever be known. Teewinot is a remarkable account of what it is like to live and work in these spectacular mountains. It has something for everyone-spellbinding accounts of dangerous and deadly climbs, unbridled awe at the beauty of nature, and an extreme passion for the environmental issues facing America today. In this series of recollections, one of America's most beautiful national parks comes alive with beauty, mystery, and power.

About the Author

Jack Turner was educated at the University of Colorado and Cornell University and taught philosophy at the University of Illinois. Since 1975, he has traveled in India, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Tibet, Bhutan, and Peru, leading more that forty treks and expeditions. He has lived in Grand Teton National Park for the past twenty-two years and teaches mountaineering during the summers at Exum Mountain Guides. He is the author of a collection of essays, The Abstract Wild, and a forthcoming account of travels in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.
