[Hansen] focuses on the relationship between climber and mountain, the ropes that link humankind to the natural world, and how people have defined themselves through the summits they have conquered. Nowhere is Hansen better than when he details the complex and varied meaning of the first successful Everest summit. Climbing, for Hansen, is an ascent into the clouds of ideas and images, and nature, as much as humans, is at the center of his quest.--R. W. Roberts"Choice" (11/01/2013)"
