Wild Country: The man who made Friends

Mark Vallance

Wild Country: The man who made Friends by Mark Vallance

Shortlisted: 2016 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature

'[Wild Country] chronicles not just the mountains [Mark] has climbed, but the part he played in bringing to market a little piece of sporting equipment that revolutionised mountaineering and saved countless lives.' - Sarah Freeman, Yorkshire Post

In early 1978, an extraordinary new invention for rock climbers was featured on the BBC television science show Tomorrow's World. It was called the 'Friend', and it not only made the sport safer, it helped push the limits of the possible. The company that made them was called Wild Country, the brainchild of...

Mischief goes South: Every herring should hang by its own tail

Harold Tilman

Mischief goes South: Every herring should hang by its own tail by Harold Tilman

'No sea voyage can be dull for a man who has an eye for the ever-changing sea and sky, the waves, the wind and the way of a ship upon the water.'

So observes H.W. 'Bill' Tilman in this account of two lengthy voyages in which dull intervals were few and far between.

In 1966, after a succession of eventful and successful voyages in the high latitudes of the Arctic, Tilman and his pilot cutter Mischief head south again, this time with the Antarctic Peninsula, Smith Island and the unclimbed Mount Foster in their sights. Mischief goes South is an account of a voyage marred by tragedy and dogged by...

Virgin on Insanity: Coming of age on the world's toughest mountains

Steve Bell

Virgin on Insanity: Coming of age on the world's toughest mountains by Steve Bell

Outwardly, 'Britain's most experienced teenage Alpinist' is a brave young mountaineer. But he's not experienced at all, at least not in the way he really wants to be. Behind his death-defying climbs there lurks a great deal of fear - fear of the opposite sex, fear of failure, fear of not being 'man enough'.

He seeks manhood in the mountains, yet he believes he will only truly gain it by losing something. Harrowing escapades in Scotland, the Alps and Alaska are interspersed by excruciating sexual encounters and unsettling hitch-hiking rides. When the mountains fail him, he seeks meaning with a...

Danger and Poetry: One Glider Pilot's First Hundred Hours, from Flight School to Rescue Mission

Joe Karam

Danger and Poetry: One Glider Pilot's First Hundred Hours, from Flight School to Rescue Mission by Joe Karam

Joe Karam was born to transcend, but perhaps not to fly. When at twenty-seven his quest for freedom led him to set foot in a glider for the first time, he was overcome with fear and desire. Nothing seemed to have prepared him for such a formidable test of courage, nor did he know anything about Charlie, the taciturn flight instructor he had just entrusted with his life. And yet the sky kept calling... A didactic memoir and a passionate love letter to aviation, Danger and Poetry unites heart and mind to celebrate the pursuit of dreams and the power of teachers.

Particularly recommended for:

Andr

Henri Lachambre

Andr by Henri LachambreIn the 21st century - the age of the budget airline - where quick and reliable air travel is available to a large segment of society, it seems hard to comprehend that it is less than 250 years since the first human took to the skies. Although the wing of the bird seemed like the most obvious natural mechanism to attempt replicate, it was actually contained hot air, as demonstrated by the Montgolfiers and their balloon, that gave birth to the era human aviation. Since the first manned balloon flight in 1783, developments have come thick and fast, the airship, the aeroplane, and finally the space...

Call-out: A climber's tales of mountain rescue in Scotland

Hamish MacInnes

Call-out: A climber's tales of mountain rescue in Scotland by Hamish MacInnes

Call-out is the definitive collection of tales about early mountain rescue in the Highlands of Scotland from Hamish MacInnes - Everest pioneer and arguably the most famous Scottish mountaineer of the twentieth century.

In the late 1960s, MacInnes led the Glencoe Mountain Rescue team and together they developed innovative techniques and equipment in order to save lives - often risking their own in the process - whether night or day, and always at a moment's notice. He was a central figure in the rescue during the 1963 New Year tragedy in the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye, and led groundbreaking...
