Mountain Heroes

Portraits Of Adventure (Face To Face)


Through the lives of legendary climbers and mountaineers, Mountain Heroes presents an epic account of endurance, enterprise, heroism and fellowship in the wildest of places. Come face to face with those who have spent their lives at altitude: explorers and pioneering travellers, intrepid ice climbers and extreme skiers, ecologists, photographers and film-makers. The weathered faces of black and white portraiture from the world's great collections are displayed alongside modern photographs by a group of leading adventure photographers such as Glen Denny, Cory Richards and Gordon Wiltsie. Among those featured are Sir Edmund Hillary, Peter Boardman, Joe Brown, George Mallory, Lynn Hill, Reinhold Messner, Tenzing Norgay, Kenton Cool, Galen Rowell, Edward Whymper, Royal Robbins, Steph Davis, Steve House, Maurice Herzog, Leo Houlding, Adam Watson, Marko Prezelj, Ines Papert and Ueli Steck. A unique and beautifully designed book, Mountain Heroes also includes special contributions from admired members of the mountaineering community, including Sir Chris Bonington, Stephen Venables and Doug Scott. Douglad MacDonald, editor-in-chief of Climbing magazine, says: In its approach, scope, and impressive execution, there s never been a climbing book like this. Highly recommended!
