Detailed Product Description
UA, 1991, 1st USA edition. 184 pp. Hardcover, Dust Jacket, New condition.

Reid provides firsthand stories of freak accidents, lost friends, and joyfully accomplished climbs. His intimate relationship with wilderness infuses the se pieces with rare passion and understanding as he relates a harrowing winter ascent of Mt. Shasta.
 
Robert Leonard Reid, a well-known writer on alpinism, delights in the satori-inducing dangers of mountaineering. 'Once on vertical rock in desert country,' he writes in Mountains of the Great Blue Dream, 'I reached for a crack, inserted my fingers, stepped up, and stared into the steely eyes of a rattlesnake coiled two feet from my hand.' And that's just a start, for this fine collection of essays recounts many other death-defying adventures endured in nights spent pinned to rock walls in howling winds, days battling ice storms and uncooperative ropes. But this is not just a book of macho accomplishment on the high peaks: Reid writes affectionately of the mountain landscapes among which he has walked and climbed, lending his book a rare and welcome poetry.
 
Hardcover, DJ, as New.
