Detailed Product Description
Anchorage, 1996, 1st edition. 295 pp. Used paperback. Near Fine condition.

Edited and compiled by Bill Sherwonit, this anthology gives voice to Alaska’s great peaks and to the people who have climbed them. Alaska Ascents takes readers to all of the state’s major mountain chains -- the St. Elias, Wrangell, Coast, Chugach, Alaska, and Brooks Ranges -- and to many of its grandest peaks, from Denali to St. Elias, Fairweather, Foraker, Hunter, Moose’s Tooth, Devil’s Thumb and the Kitchatna Spires.
 
The storytellers in this collection reveal the challenges of Alaska’s mountains, among the most inaccessible and difficult to climb in all of North America. Through these mountaineering stories, we learn about the people who are drawn to scale such peaks and who experience the triumph of the spirit and sometimes tragedy and loss. Sherwonit includes an introduction to each story, to provide context on the mountains, the expeditions, the climbers.
 
Climbers and authors include Filipppo de Filippi, Jon Krakauer, Brad Washburn, Hudson Stuck, Riccardo Cassin, Art Davidson, Michael Kennedy, Fred Beckey, Jonathan Waterman, David Roberts, Royal Robbins, Robert Marshall and Paddy Sherman.
