Days to Remember: Adventures and reflections of a mountain guide

Rob Collister

Days to Remember: Adventures and reflections of a mountain guide by Rob Collister

Days to Remember is a collection of tales from well-known mountain guide Rob Collister - tales of long days on the hill, travelling fast and light, often alone, and always steering well clear of the honeypots. From day trips around his local hills in Wales, to worldwide expeditions including the Silvretta Alps, Gletscherhorn, the Cordillera Blanca and Annapurna, Rob Collister enjoys covering ground under his own steam, whether it be walking, running, climbing, cycling or skiing.

With a foreword from renowned British mountaineer and writer Stephen Venables, this collection of essays communicates...

No Barriers: A Blind Man's Journey to Kayak the Grand Canyon

Erik Weihenmayer & Buddy Levy

No Barriers: A Blind Man's Journey to Kayak the Grand Canyon by Erik Weihenmayer & Buddy Levy

Erik Weihenmayer is the first and only blind person to summit Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Descending carefully, he and his team picked their way across deep crevasses and through the deadly Khumbu Icefall; when the mountain was finally behind him, Erik knew he was going to live. His expedition leader slapped him on the back and said something that would affect the course of Erik's life: "Don't make Everest the greatest thing you ever do."

No Barriers is Erik's response to that challenge. It is the moving story of his journey since descending Mount Everest: from leading expeditions...

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...

The Long Trail

Kermit Roosevelt

The Long Trail by Kermit RooseveltOriginally published in 1921. From Kermit Roosevelt's book 'The happy hunging grounds', we are privilaged to print seperately, one chapter under the title The long trail. Mr Roosevelt has supplied additional material to this chapter, which is published for the first time in this volume. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
