Jul 26, 2008 Kevin rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Recommends it for: Climbers, mountaineers, historians, biography-lovers
This book was very well written by the author, whose experience of going out to the Himalayas herself was of immense value to her written work, backed up by her photographs.

The narrative was informative and conjecture used constructively where there were gaps in Maurice Wilson's diary, made more believable by the detailed research done before/whilst the book was written.

Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in Bradfordians, climbing, mountaineering, aviation and 20th century history.
