... about Longs Peak.
On the back cover of this book is a quote from Harold Dunning, 1930: "To tell all that one can see from the top of Longs Peak would be telling too much, so you must climb it yourself..." That is true. Yet even those who have climbed Longs Peak, or attempted to do so, love to read about it. To such people, this book was dedicated. Trimble writes with passion and understanding about a subject he obviously loves.
Fortunately, he has a grasp of history, both the more recent kind as well as the sort that is written upon the rocks. He also provides an appendix on climbing ratings, notable Longs Peak firsts, and deaths on Longs Peak. For those who want to read more about the topics he touches upon, he provides an excellent bibliography at the back of his book.
