climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

The Shishapangma Expedition
"The late Alex Maclntyre and Doug Scott's account of their expedition to climb the 8012-meter Shishapangma by its unexplored southwest face is both fascinating and unusual—in large part because all six of the team members contribute to the narrative. As a result, the strengths, the weaknesses, the humor, the bickering and backbiting are all there."

Angels of Light
"Jeff Long has written a climbing Western, with philosophical overtones. Yosemite Valley provides the setting and much of the substance of his exciting and extravagant novel."

The Challenge
"(…) it's an excellent adventure story, which even granny would enjoy. It has excitement, danger, sex, and a hero who tears himself away from his wife and home in order to try something new on a big mountain."

Trango:
The Nameless Tower

"As an expedition book, it is something entirely different. It is teeming with anecdotes and funny stories, as refreshing as a mountain stream in contrast to the usual treadmill of endeavour and heroics performed by supermen at high altitude."

The Wildest Dream: The Biography of George Mallory
"The book is a magnificent portrait of the most famous mountaineer in history, and certainly the most incisive dissection of his complex character that has yet been achieved. Better than all of that, it is beautifully written and compelling; a tribute to the journalistic craftsmanship of Peter Gilman."

The Shining Mountain
“It is very good—an exciting tale well told, giving a real insight into what it is like out at the front. This was one of the hardest routes so far tackled among big mountains. The resulting gripping story is a must for the mountaineer's bookshelf, if indeed he has any room remaining on it.”

Mountain Light
"Galen Rowell is a notable mountaineer and a talented and well travelled photojournalist. This book is a collection of eighty of his favourite photographs shot between 1970 - two years before he turned professional -and 1985 - by which time he had become probably the world's best known, certainly highest profile, adventure and wilderness photographer."

Thin Air: Encounters
in the Himalayas

"It is a remarkable book, full of thoughts and reflection yet never indulging in excessive introspection, full of strong feeling yet never sentimental. There are some fascinating portraits of contemporary climbers."

We Aspired
"We Aspired appears twenty years after the last events it describes have taken place: events people, landscape, movement, and emotion percolating in memory for years, until Sinclair could find their essences in language. In this book the great days are recounted with a rare precision and grace commensurate to the task."

The Endless Knot
"This is not so much a mountaineering book as a love story. A story of the love between a man and a woman and their passion for mountains. A soliloquy rather than a narrative, a story of death and disaster with few heroes."

Reinhold Messner Free Spirit
"Free Spirit is a hammer blow to those of us who have not achieved our full potential, to those of us who have settled for less or wasted our talent on things we never really wanted in the first place."

Second Ascent: The Story of Hugh Herr
"Prepare to be alternately inspired, horrified, and—ultimately—impressed by Second Ascent. (...) the story of Hugh Herr is a memorable read on par with the best biographical literature written."

My Vertical World
"He was the second climber, after media star Reinhold Messner, to climb all 14 mountains in the Himalayan rosary of 8000-meter peaks. In My Vertical World, Jerzy Kukuczka reveals that he was indeed a very lucky climber, but also that he made his own luck through hard work, dogged determination, and inspired optimism. He was at once a singular, innovative, and unique adventurer."

Mountaineering in Patagonia
"Alan Kearney has gone to climb in Patagonia five times. With the hard-won knowledge accrued from these exploits and from an obvious passion for these mountains, Kearney has undertaken the task of putting together a climbing source book on Patagonia."

The Ascent
"It is quite simply the best mountaineering novel we have ever read. It is a deceptive book, written as a thriller and marketed as an airport novel. The plot is so gripping that it carries the reader through the subtle mysteries of the relationships, symbolism and political manoeuvrings at a first reading."
