Perrin, at one time one of the UK’s leading rock climbers, has long been regarded as one of the country’s best writers on climbing. His favorite literary form is the essay and here he collects 60 of them, composed over 40 years. If you want insight into the practice, people and history of climbing you’ll find it here from one of its great subversive characters expressed with an elegance, intelligence, and ferocity that is startling, stimulating, funny, sensual, and alive to the joy of climbing. Perrin is a prior winner of the 1985 and 2005 Boardman-Tasker Awards, and the 2005 Banff Mountain Book Festival Mountaineering History Award.

Winner 2006 Banff Mountain Book Festival Best Book Mountain Literature.
