Climbing in North America takes a historical look at the fascinating, dangerous world of
mountaineering in the U.S. and Canada. Expatriate English climber Chris Jones
offers a unique perspective, capturing the intensity and wealth of personality
in the men and women who have the gritty determination to go to the top. He
introduces North American climbing pioneers such as Zebulon Pike and Royal
Robbins, who helped to establish a completely new style of climbing, as well as
the noteworthy athletes and thrill seekers who would come after. Each climbing
legend is presented with a fresh voice and a true eye for the sport's detail.
This 1997 reprint edition also includes classic black-and-white photos of the
sport's summit chasers.
