5.0 von 5 Sternen Turn up the heat and secure your climbing harness!, 18. November 1998
A collection of brilliant stories from Jon Krakauer that will send chills up your spine and waves of vertigo through your mind. No one brings home the terror of dangling 2000 feet in the air by an ice ax like Krakauer. His wonderfully humorous (and occasionally downright absurd) depictions of characters and situations paint a memorable portrait of the anguish, the isolation, and even the occasional reward of cold-climate climbing. If you want to get close enough to vertical ice to feel the shuddering thunk of your ax as it bites into the Eisinglas, or high enough on an arctic slope to see your breath whisked away in a -40 degree gale without leaving the comfort of your living room, then this is the book for you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A glimpse into the very heart of the Sierra Nevada., 17. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Close Ups of the High Sierra (Taschenbuch)
This collection of Norman Clyde short topics from the 1920's and 1930's captures, in Clyde's refreshingly unassuming style, the very essence of life in the Siera Nevada- through the eyes of the man who spent more of his life there, made more first ascents, and knew the high country better than any man before or since. While modestly illustrated by modern standards, the work covers many aspects of the region which can not be found elsewhere. A must-have for all who have felt the almost spiritual draw of this rugged and beautiful mountain range.
