Product Description

A classic of French mountaineering literature by Roger Frison-Roche. First published in the 1930s, this is the acclaimed English-language version, skillfully translated by Janet Adam-Smith.

'This book is full of feeling, exploring the whys of mountaineering eloquently, through the lives of the guides, their aspirants and the wider communities of Chamonix and the Haute Savoie. It is a book that also tells the story of people finding their way back to the mountains after experiencing tragedy and their own severe physical damage, of their struggles and, ultimately, their return. The ways in which the beauty of the Alpine landscape is described is worth the read alone, and the story is a good one.'
