From the Eiger's notorious North Face, to Maurice Herzog's timeless epic on Annapurna, to a stirring rescue on the small crag by literary critic and novelist Al Alvarez, Tales From The Steep will introduce non-climbers to the sheer arena of those "...playing on the frontiers of life and death ...searching for the freedom which is the ultimate need of our natures." Here are stories "...that had to be told," where the difference between epic achievement and disaster can depend on the breadth of a single knot. Chosen for both literary merit and authenticity, the stories in Tales From The Steep are required reading for anyone who apprediates classic adventures.
