One of the last surviving explorers and adventurers of the 20th century, Dr. Bradford Washburn, now in his 90s, provides the most detailed look at his multifaceted, exciting career. Washburn is renowned for his pioneering work in aerial photography in Alaska’s mountains, his thirteen first ascents of Alaskan peaks, his devotion to science, and his decades-long relationship with the National Geographic Society. Washburn is also famed for his meticulous cartography, having mapped McKinley, Everest, Washington, and the Grand Canyon. He led the first ascent of the popular West Buttress route on Mount McKinley and, for four decades, he was a major player in leading and developing Boston’s Museum of Science. This autobiography also offers rare photographs and little-known anecdotes about Washburn’s World War II service, other explorations, and his special partnership with wife Barbara.
