Himalayan Climber: A Lifetime Quest to the World's Greatest Ranges

by Doug K. Scott
 

Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
This handsome volume's text and accompanying pictorial diary--Scott is an excellent photographer--attempt to capture his harrowing ascents among the world's greatest mountain peaks and rock faces. In relating his mountaineering philosophy--"Climbing is all about facing the unknown and the outcome should remain uncertain until the end"--Scott makes his boundless desire for new challenges apparent. The most memorable climbs of his career are chronicled, amid disappointments, and the euphoria of attainment is shared. Unparalleled vistas abound, but when he's describing the rigors of climbing, the language of mountaineers proves arduous to follow. Still, the visuals alone are worthy material for many an armchair journey.
