A terrific biography of the greatest mountaineer in Alaskan history and one of the finest mountain photographers of all time – Brad Washburn. Roberts introduces the family, teachers, friends, colleagues, and rivals who would play important roles in this legendary man's experiences, and re-creates his enthralling journeys to some of the most remote and beautifully wild places on earth. An exciting narrative of mountain climbing in the 20th century, this brings into focus Washburn's deeds in the context of the history of mountaineering.

Winner 2009 Banff Mountain Book Festival James Monroe Thorington Award for Best Work of Mountaineering History.
