About the book:

Climbing in North America takes a historical look at the fascinating, dangerous world of mountaineering in the U.S. and Canada. Expatriate English climber Chris Jones offers a unique perspective, capturing the intensity and wealth of personality in the men and women who have the gritty determination to go to the top. He introduces North American climbing pioneers such as Zebulon Pike and Royal Robbins, who helped to establish a completely new style of climbing, as well as the noteworthy athletes and thrill seekers who would come after. Each climbing legend is presented with a fresh voice and a true eye for the sport's detail. This 1997 reprint edition also includes classic black-and-white photos of the sport's summit chasers. --Lance Judd
