This is the first and only definitive book about the free-climbing history of North America, written by Master of Rock Pat Ament. While other books have covered some of the material, there has never been as clear a chronology or as thorough, accurate, and well-researched a treatment. Ament leaves the critique and analysis to others and lets these remarkable events speak for themselves in a succinct, refreshing, and imitable style.The book includes interviews and commentary by many world-class climbers, including Royal Robbins, John Gill, Pete Cleveland, Henry Barber, John Bachar, Lynn Hill, John Long, Steve Roper, Jimmy Dunn, Dean potter, and Alan Watts. Photographs from prominent climbing photographers, such as Tom Frost, illustrate the prose and bring to life the personalities of many of these legendary climbers.Numerous climbing areas are covered, from the Adirondacks in upstate New York, to Arizona, the Pacific Northwest, Devils Lake in Wisconsin, and The Needles in South Dakota. This readable encyclopedia includes interviews, anecdotes, stories, and colorful quotes, along with funny and imaginiative writing. This is the book for newcomers to the sport as well as long-time aficionados. It will appeal to both die-hard climbers and to those who prefer adventuring in an armchair. A marvelous sense of suspense and adventure radiates from virtually every page.… (mer)
