Lovely book of 1960s Yosemite with fantastic photos. One of my best and favourite coffee table books. So evocative of a classic era of climbing with great pictures of the characters that made the era so special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just love his photos and style, 31 Dec. 2014

Just love his photos and style. This book of his introduces friends in a fly fishing environment. Some might think it a little dated - all the photos are taken on film (not digital) and remind you of a bygone earn which was not so long ago.

For anyone going on their first saltwater trip this book is invaluable. I bought it after my first trip and really wish I had got it before. Even though I have been numerous times I still look through it before a trip and pick up or remind myself of something. Saltwater is so different to traditional freshwater it really is a help. Nice photos. Easy to read with a page or two dedicated to individual aspects including saltwater knots. Recommended.


Fanfare

Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic surprise, 4 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Fanfare (Audio CD)
I was given the LP as a gift. Not having ever heard John Wilson before I was completely bowled over.
The vinyl came with the CD and I have been listening to it in the car, even my wife appreciated it!
A great mix of styles and influences, Beatles, Who, Southern Rock, Eagles etc.
Probably my album of 2013!


Preposterous Tales: The International Climbing Escapades of Neil Gresham, Tim Emmett and Friends
Preposterous Tales: The International Climbing Escapades of Neil Gresham, Tim Emmett and Friends
by Neil Gresham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and worth it...., 13 Jan. 2011
Really is great fun. Gives a whole new meaning to climbing and escapades, a polar opposite to the "stayed" autobiographies/stories which we are so often subjected to.
It will inspire, but also provides a sense of humour to the whole idea of climbing and trips.
Well worth it!
"MFI"....mad for it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful!!!..., 20 Oct. 2009
What more can be said. It is so predictable...Langdon off to DC...of course Peter Solomon has been captured...and 50 or so pages later it is fairly obvious Mal'akh is his son. And so it goes on. Dan Brown is obviously desperately trying to create history for the Americans using the Masons and the Bible etc. I did like his earlier books...this is truly second rate drivel!

This review is from: North Sea Hijack [DVD] (DVD)
Not too bad. Probably one of Roger Moore's better films (Wild Geese is a favourite). Story line is OK and to a degree believable. An enjoyable afternoons watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good..., 8 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd forgotten how tense with an element of brutality this film was when you consider the other disaster films of the same era. It certainly (IMHO) is a notch above Towering Inferno etc. Doesn't have the effects of modern films, but these get silly, especially the survival rates of the stars - they seem to survive being shot, falling from a tower block and blown up!!!Good list of stars. Very enjoyable.
