Descriptions du produit

The wall was the ambition, the style became the obsession.' In the autumn of 1982, a single stone fell from high on the south face of Annapurna and struck Alex MacIntyre on the head, killing him instantly and robbing the climbing world of one of its greatest talents. Although only twenty-eight years old, Alex was already one of the leading figures of British mountaineering's most successful era. His ascents included hard new routes on Himalayan giants like Dhaulagiri and Changabang and a glittering record of firsts in the Alps and Andes. Yet how Alex climbed was as important as what he climbed. He was a mountaineering prophet, sharing with a handful of contemporaries - including his climbing partner Voytek Kurtyka - the vision of a purer form of alpinism on the world's highest peaks. One Day As A Tiger, John Porter's revelatory and poignant memoir of his friend Alex MacIntyre, shows mountaineering at its extraordinary best and tragic worst - and draws an unforgettable picture of a dazzling, argumentative and exuberant legend.

As good as it gets 1 octobre 2014
Par Al Burgess - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I just read this book on a flight from Manchester to Las Vegas, every word. I know the author well and the subject matter only a little less so. John must have kept very detailed journals during his trips and also interviewed many of the people who knew Alex because some of the incidents in which I was involved I had conveniently forgotten.
His writing style reflects not only a master of his craft but a sense of history of the period and the importance of the changing style of expedition climbing, especially compared to the mass guiding and hauling of clients up peaks such as Everest nowadays. I recommend that ever wannabe mountaineer guided on high peaks read this book. It will make everything clear.
It is not only the nail biting detail of hard climbing and often sketchy travel methods that make this book important, but the intimate detail with which the author describes and paints the picture of groups of friends and fellow climbers and how they related, interacted and made deep sacrifices and commitments to their sport.
I predict this book will win awards and be discussed with some animation. Go buy it.
