33 brief mountain tales • from angels on summits to ghosts on ledges, from madmen on diamox to malevolent gurus on mountain tops • these intertwined and very short peeks at the mountains tell tales from the past, present, and future.
“These are no ordinary mountain stories: they are tales of the mystery that lies at the heart of ascent. And not just the ascent of the rock climber and alpinist, but the ascent of the monk, the stone mason, the goat, the cobbler and the office worker. In his magic way, Jerry Auld reveals the secrets of our need to reach for something intangible, something sacred, something forbidden.”
