it was amazing

I have heard various tales about mountaineers in my lifetime, but was never really able to hear about it firsthand, from their own personal view. The pictures that the author included made his story all the more real, because the pictures were as tangible as the words. While reading this book, I could close my eyes and imagine myself in the great outdoors, learning all the tricks the mountains have to share. To know that the author is in his 90s is almost unbelievable, but reading his story shows the reader exactly how fascinating his life truly was. Though it took me a while to read this book, the only reason why is because I kept going back to look at the pictures (which really added to the story). If you are into learning about great adventurers, this book is definitely a must-read.
