Format: Paperback
This is a great book, albeit a very unconventional one. It provides a history of the climbs done in the Tordrillo range of Alaska, of peaks such as Mt. Spurr (a very active volcano), Torbert, Gerdine and Nagishlamina. Also included are valuable tips for climbers, a fascinating history of early explorers of the region, and an account of how the mountains and glaciers acquired their names. There are interesting biographical sketches of the climbers; the reader will end up feeling that he knows them well. The photographs, some of which are in color, are stunning. One shows a twin-engine Piper that landed on the shoulder of Mt. Gerdine, on a 60 degree slope, its tail dangling over a 2000-foot drop to a lower glacier. The plane's perch was considered too precarious for a rescue attempt, and the pilot and two passengers perished. There are many other stories of harrowing adventures and some tragedies. The book is extremely well written, and will be of interest to the general reader as well as climbers.
