4.0 out of 5 stars POETRY IN MOTION...THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROPE, 5 Nov. 2002
Lawyeraau (Balmoral Castle) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Starlight and Storm (Hardcover)
Lyrically written, the author, Gaston Rebuffat, one of the world's climbing greats, expresses such joy for mountaineering that it is infectious. No climbing enthusiast's library should be without this book. The photograph of Rebuffat which graces the cover of this book is alone worth the price of the book.
Rebuffat is positively poetic in his description of various climbs. The reader almost feels as if one were one with the mountain. A purist, the author climbed not for the glory of it, but for the sheer joy of the brotherhood of the rope. In these days, where climbing is often just a reason for a media event, the author's approach is refreshing, indeed.
