Chris Bonington Mountaineer: Thirty Years of Climbing on the World's Great Peaks

£9.99

Product description

Published in 1989: "Chris Bonington has produced a photographic autobiography of his thirty years of activity in top standard climbing on the world's most challenging mountains. Mountaineer enables us to share with him the majesty and danger of the great peaks in a collection of photographs of compelling power and interest. The dramatic stories behind many of the photographs are described in detailed captions. The cut and thrust of major action is balanced by his love of home life with the crags and hills of the Lake District close at hand. All these elements are reflected in the photographs and discussed in a series of retrospective essays. The overall result is a penetrating insight into the motivations and fears of a driven climber who sets out year after year from a life of comfort and success to test himself amongst the world's most savage mountains."

Book in very good condition.
