"Hope Springs Eternal"

John F. Gibson

"Hope Springs Eternal" by John F. Gibson

"Hope Springs Eternal" is semi-autobiographical and touches on actual events and incidents experienced by the Author. They range from the earthy life of an Appalachian Sharecropper, to the "grotesque and Arabesque" actions and delusions of a genius gone mad!

John Fee Gibson was born and raised in the Appalachian foothills of Southeastern Kentucky. He moved to Ohio as a young man where he graduated from The Ohio State University. He was employed in the metals removal industry for several years as a tool and die maker, designer, and computer aided drafting and machining engineer. He received his...

China to Chitral: Mountains are the beginning and end of all scenery

Harold Tilman

China to Chitral: Mountains are the beginning and end of all scenery by Harold Tilman

'Upon this trackless waste of snow, cut by a shrewd wind they sat down and wept.'

In China to Chitral H.W. 'Bill' Tilman completes one of his great post-war journeys. He travels from Central China, crossing Sinkiang, the Gobi and Takla Makan Deserts, before escaping to a crumbling British Empire with a crossing of the Karakoram to the new nation of Pakistan.

In 1951 there still persisted a legend that a vast mountain, higher than Everest, was to be found in the region, a good enough reason it seems for Tilman to traverse the land, 'a land shut in on three sides by vast snow ranges whose glacial...

In Mischief's Wake: In the joy of the actors lies the sense of any action. That is the explanation, that the excuse.

Harold Tilman

In Mischief's Wake: In the joy of the actors lies the sense of any action. That is the explanation, that the excuse. by Harold Tilman

'I felt like one who had first betrayed and then deserted a stricken friend; a friend with whom for the past fourteen years I had spent more time at sea than on land, and who, when not at sea, had seldom been out of my thoughts.'

The first of the three voyages described in this book gives H.W. 'Bill' Tilman's account of the final voyage and loss of Mischief, the Bristol Channel pilot cutter in which he had sailed over 100,000 miles to high latitudes in both Arctic and Antarctic waters.

Back home, refusing to accept defeat and going against the advice of his surveyor, he takes ownership of Sea Breeze...

Peter Freuchen

Arctic Adventure - My Life in the Frozen North by Peter FreuchenPeter Freuchen's 1935 work gives an incredible account of his time spent living and exploring near the north pole.

William Boyd Dawkins and the Victorian Science of Cave Hunting: Three Men in a Cavern

Mark John White

William Boyd Dawkins and the Victorian Science of Cave Hunting: Three Men in a Cavern by Mark John WhiteWilliam Boyd Dawkins was a controversial Victorian geologist, palaeontologist and archaeologist who has divided opinion as either a hero or villain. For some, he was a pioneer of Darwinian science as a member of the Lubbock-Evans network, while for others he was little more than a reckless vandal who destroyed irreplaceable evidence and left precious little for future generations to assess. In this volume, Professor Mark White provides an unbiased archaeological and geological account of Boyd Dawkins' career and legacy by drawing on almost twenty years of research as well as his archive of published...

Never Quit: From Alaskan Wilderness Rescues to Afghanistan Firefights as an Elite Special Ops PJ

Jimmy Settle & Don Rearden

Never Quit: From Alaskan Wilderness Rescues to Afghanistan Firefights as an Elite Special Ops PJ by Jimmy Settle & Don Rearden

"That Others May Live" is a mantra that defines the fearless men of Alaska's 212th Pararescue Unit, the PJs, one of the most elite military forces on the planet. Whether they are rescuing citizens injured and freezing in the Alaskan wilderness or saving wounded Rangers and SEALS in blazing firefights at war, the PJs are the least known and most highly trained of America's warriors.

Never Quit is the true story of how Jimmy Settle, an Alaskan shoe store clerk, became a Special Forces Operator and war hero. After being shot in the head during a dangerous high mountain operation in the rugged Watapur...

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...
