Detailed Product Description

Oregon, Epicenter Press, 2001, 1st edition. 128 pp, b/w photos. New large hardcover with dust jacket. 

SIGNED by Bradford Washburn.

Brad Washburn's diaries of his historic expeditions to Mt Crillon, Mt Hubbard and the 1951 first ascent of McKinley's now popular West Buttress route. Incredible photos. 

Alaska and the Yukon. Cold. Mysterious. Distant. Imagine how empty and forbidding the region seemed in the 1930s when young Bradford Washburn began a series of exploratory expeditions. With its glorious black and white, large format photographs, EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN contains previously unpublished diaries kept during Washburn's 1934 first ascent of Alaska's Mt. Crillon; the 1935 National Geographic Society-sponsored exploration of wilderness regions of the Canadian Yukon; and the 1951 first climb of Mt. McKinley's West Buttress. "...this book will provide you with a bracing armchair escapade." - Fearless Reader

Dr. Bradford Washburn is an explorer, mountaineer, writer, photographer, and mapmaker who for 41 years led scientific expeditions for and directed Boston's Museum of Science. Lew Freedman is a reporter for the Chicago Tribune and has written numerous books about Alaska.
