Product Description

About the Author

Simon Yates is an internationally acclaimed mountaineer, adventurer and author who first came to prominence in 1985 after the first ascent of the West Face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes and the ensuing epic descent described in Joe Simpson's book Touching the Void. In a prolific career spanning almost thirty years, Simon's climbing adventures have taken him west to east, from Alaska to Australia; and from north to south, from the Canadian Arctic to the tip of South America. He has climbed with many of Britain's leading mountaineers including Andy Cave, Mick Fowler, Andy Parkin, Paul Pritchard, Doug Scott, establishing many first ascents in the process. He is the author of two previous books: Against the Wall, and The Flame of Adventure, both released to critical acclaim and the former finishing as runner-up for the prestigious Boardman Tasker Prize. Simon lives in Cumbria with his wife, young son and daughter. When not writing and lecturing he runs his own expedition company, Mountain Dream.

HASH(0xa29a7ed0) out of 5 stars The Best so far! March 11 2012
By Jackie W - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read both of Simon's other books and this one, is the best BY far! It is an excellent mixture of climbing adventures in obscure places,family life, and wry observations of our increasingly complex communications driven world. The book's strength lies in the way Simon manages to marry these all up. One minute you feel ensconsed in a snowy vast and beautiful wilderness, and then you have an anecdote about satellite phones and boilers breaking down! Very human, very warm and very funny, and well observed.
Even if you have never stepped foot upon a mountainside, you will love this book; and chuckle at Simon's observations of life in our instant communication driven world. The contrast of wilderness,and personal shines through. He has captured the balance of becoming a parent,and at the same time remaining true to himself, and family with sincerity. His quest for both discovery and zest for life, sustains this book and shines through. I found it an uplifting and invigorating read, mixed with some fine benchmarks for us to hang on to in this increasingly complex world.

One can relate to and share in Simon's experiences on these great adventures. A very good read without being bogged down in too much technical jargon.
HASH(0xa3186498) out of 5 stars Meandering global adventures Sept. 30 2015
By Paul John Flory - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A disappointing book. It does not measure up to Yates' previous effort "Flame of Adventure". It reads like a diary or a travelogue: many visits to interesting and scenic places, meeting some very nice people, but there is no central story in the book: it meanders. Perhaps this reflects Yates himself, who appears to be a wanderer seeking out wild parts of the globe in his middle age without particular goals or causes in mind. Not much climbing, and much of what there is sounds random and not driven. Perhaps Yates is being self-deprecating and the climbs were more desperate than he makes them sound? Sorry, this book just did not grab me.
