Reviews

A truly inspiring read
*Sir Ranulph Fiennes*

A marvellous, distinguished book that jolted my heart ... It simply fizzes with insights into the sublime madness of mountaineering
*Roger Deakin*

A gripping history of man's irresistible and sometimes fatal attraction to big hills
*Sunday Times*

A magnificent book
*New Scientist*

A brilliant book, beautifully written
*Guardian*

Macfarlane's writing is exquisite and so evocative of his surroundings. As a reader it's difficult not to be drawn into his excitement for his subject matters. The books don't just make you want to keep reading, they make you want to climb or lose yourself or roam or hike, and experience some of what he's experiencing
*Bath Life*
