Vivid look into a world class Alpinist
This book is fantastic. Steve House brings you into a realistic and sometimes frightening world of an alpinist. He is authentic and entertaining. He is cocky and has the resume to back it up. I am a city boy yearning for the mountains. I bought this book to read on the subway and teleport me to the Tetons, Himalayas, and Rockies. I have missed my stop more than once.
