About this product
- DescriptionFrom his youthful second ascent of the rth ridge of Mount Kennedy in the Yukon's Saint Elias Range, an in-and-out on skis for which he had t entirely learned how to ski, to a recent excursion across the Harding Icefield conceived under the influence of rain and whiskey, David Stevenson chronicles several decades of a life unified by a preoccupation with climbing. Reflective and literary, and also entertaining and funny, his accounts move across the great climbing locations of the western United States, with forays into the spires of the Alps, and slip freely in time from the author's childhood, when he could t wait to head west, to his adulthood, with a wife and two sons, in which he still feels compelled by a longing to be on the heights.
- Author BiographyDavid Stevenson is the director of the Creative Writing and Literary Arts Department at the University of Alaska Anchorage. He is the author of the short fiction collection Letters from Chamonix, winner of the Banff Mountain Festival Fiction Prize.
