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

50 Years of Alpinism
“Riccardo Cassin has written a masterpiece of an autobiography—possibly the most important mountaineering book to be published in the last twenty-five years!"

Anderl Heckmair: My Life
"Heckmair, as well as being rather a good climber, turned out to be rather a good survivor - and a rather splendid yarn teller. In My Life he recounts his rocks-to-riches life story; from orphanage to the Eigerwand..."

Beyond the Vertical
"Beyond the metaphorical vertical is a place where the search for oneself, the achievement of excellence, the desire for risk, and the struggle for survival become indistinguishably interwoven. Through topologically fertile landscapes, Layton Kor visited this place with an intensity that was rare..."

Climbing Free: My Life in the Vertical World
"My intent has been to describe the experiences that have most shaped my life and love for climbing - writes Lynn Hill as she introduces her autobiography. In 13 chapters this is what Lynn Hill has succeeded in doing."

Dougal Haston: The Philosophy of Risk
"Laconic Scottish hardman Dougal Haston rose from humble beginnings as a baker's son to become one of the "beautiful people" of fashionable 1970s Leysin, Switzerland."

Feeding the Rat
“Mo Anthoine is probably one of the most well-known British climbers to the climbing fraternity and yet a complete unknown to the general public, and this is just how he likes it."

Garry Hemming: The Beatnik of the Alps
"In the early 1960s Gary Hemming rocked the Alps with the first ascents of the American Direct on the Dru, and the South Face of the Fou, then two of Chamonix’s most difficult routes. A daring rescue brightened the limelight..."

Gervasutti's Climbs
"A facsimile reprint of the original 1957 translation of Gervasutti's autobiography. Unavailable for some years this is a worthwhile classic to reprint as the climbs done by Gervasutti were way ahead of their time..."

Hermann Buhl:
Climbing without Compromise

"Messner and Hofler draw on diary entries and letters by Buhl, in addition to other sources not available in English, to give us a portrait more human and fallible than the usual climbing biography."

Himalayan Climber
"Each time frequent-flyer Scott leaves England, his Pentax accompanies him, and this book shows his photographic talents to spectacular effect: Himalayan Climber is basically a coffee-table picture book."

Jerry Moffatt - Revelations
Moffatt and Grimes have done climbing history a service in setting down the story of UK climbing in the “dole era” of the 1980s — a story that was quickly becoming forgotten. </ br> GRAND PRIZE WINNER - BANFF MOUNTAIN BOOK FESTIVAL 2009

Master of Rock: The Biography of John Gill
"The idea of someone who can climb levels harder than anyone else, which is what I had always heard about Gill, is completely intriguing. So when Master of Rock came out I was delighted and couldn't wait to read it (...)"

Menlove: The Life
of John Menlove Edwards

“It should be said at once that Jim Perrin's new life, Menlove, is not just another book which climbers will want to have on their shelves, although it must come very high in that category. It is a remarkable biography, which deserves to be read by a public of whom many may even want to skip all the climbing bits..."

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."

On Edge: The Life
& Climbs of Henry Barber

“Henry Barber will almost certainly be remembered as the outstanding international rock climber of the 1970's. I say rock climber because, with respect for his adventures elsewhere in the mountains, it was on rock that Henry made his mark."
