CHALLENGE by William Robert- Ed. Irwin


Email this review


For the outdoor young person who likes action and thrills in his reading this collection of factual and fictional accounts of men against mountains is the ticket. By good climbers and writers, the group includes such eye witness adventure as ""The Conquest of Minya Konka"" to John Buchan's ""How I Stalked Wilder Game Than Deer"". There are names famous in the sport here- Whymper, Mummery, and members of the Sikong Expedition as well as well known writers like Thoreau and Evelyn Waugh. Here is a tasty collection for those times when the weather drives the adventurer indoors, and even for hiking hints in camps.
