    Excellent stuff- Climb along with Ed.

    Once again, for fans (armchair & otherwise) of mountaineering literature, Viesturs & Roberts have put together a fine book. Too often, when writing about the high mountains, authors fall into prose too philosophical and mystical for me. These two, however, tell the stories of the mountains without the detours into the spiritual/what's-the-meaning-of-it-all style that mars many mountaineering books. You will still be awed at the spirit and strength of the men and women who climb. You'll still be inspired by the beauty of 26,000+ foot peaks. If you have read other books by Viesturs & Roberts, you may find that you're re-reading stories they have told in other books, but in the context of this book, you won't mind revisiting those old stories. Pull on your expedition weight long johns, get cozy, and climb along with Ed.
