Product Description

About the Author

Alfred Edward Wooley Mason was born in 1865. He was educated at Dulwich College before going up to Oxford University. Once his formal education was completed, Mason went on to become an actor, which had been an ambition since schooldays. He began his writing career with historical fiction, but then moved into the arena of politics, becoming a Liberal Member of Parliament for Coventry in 1906. However, his love of writing stayed with him and Mason further developed his repertoire and style to incorporate detective fiction, introducing one of the earliest fictional detectives, Inspector Hanaud, the Gallic counterpart to Sherlock Holmes. His detective fiction contains material clues and spontaneity. Throughout the course of his life Mason produced over thirty titles. The most enduring work is ‘The Four Feathers’ which is the most filmed work of any writer in the 20th century, with seven versions in all. There have also been many other films and plays based on his novels, including the Hanaud series. A.E.W. Mason died in 1948. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

faulty text June 4 2011
By Nicholas Clifford - Published on
Format: Paperback
There aren't many mountaineering novels, but this is one of them. Like Mason's Four Feathers, it's a romantic adventure story, the final scene set on the great Brenva face of Mont Blanc, though much of the story takes place in England.

A word of warning about this edition; If you look on p. 3, you will see the phrase "humaning her with a smile." The original, of course, reads "humanizing her with a smile." The misprint of "humaning" is also found in the Project Gutenberg version, and I imagine this text has been taken from Gutenberg (which also has some other mistakes in it). So why not simply download the Gutenberg text, which is free, and put up with the misprints? or, if you want a better version, go search one of the used booksellers on the web, and get a used copy of the real thing?
Novel of an early female Alpine climber Nov. 27 2014
By H. R. S. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Set in the Alpine climbing community in the latter part of the 19th century, this novel sets up suspense, romance, and adventure for Sylvia Thesiger, a young woman climber drawn to the Alps. She leaves her mother's overbearing yet heedless care to go live with the father she's never met. Meanwhile, she meets climber Hilary Chayne, and together they uncover a plot which endangers a young man with links to both.

running water May 28 2014
By michael gavin anderson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was written in a very old fashioned manner. good for seeing what victorians were really like. Many red herrings that just vanished. There was no explanation of why the leading bad guy changed his identity, and how he intended to kill his victim on the Old Brenva Route on Mt. Blanc.
The heroine was too prim and proper. how can one read a novel without the slightest hint of spicy nights.
Chamonix is not in Switzerland!
