A Rope of Writers

A Look at Mountaineering Literature in Britain


A Rope of Writers : A look at mountaineering literature in Britain traces the strands running through a century of mountaineering literature. From the earliest to the modern of guidebooks, writing about British hills has a long, varied and (mostly) honourable tradition. The author, mountain enthusiast and literature teacher, takes a shrewd and appreciative look at the genre. The reader is led on a diverse tour of all things climbing and walking, taking in fiction writers, humorists and philosophers amongst others, tracing the strands running through a century of mountaineering literature - short listed for the 2006 'Boardman Tasker' award.
