5.0 out of 5 stars First rate mountain literature, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Savage Arena (Kindle Edition)
This is one of the best mountain books I've read. Joe Tasker describes a number of his expeditions starting with the North Face of the Eiger and then to Himalayan climbs which put him and his climbing partners at the forefront of alpine-style mountaineering at the time. His descriptions go far beyond straight forward accounts of the climbs as Joe explores his fears and feelings, relationships with his climbing partners and his burning motivation. Together with Pete Boardman's writing, it is no wonder the Boardman-Tasker mountain literature prize was named after them. And this book is probably better than most of the subsequent winners of that prize.

This book really made me think about the harsh conditions experienced by Joe Tasker and Pete Boardman. My mind has been taken to amazing places on the mountains.

Fantastic first hand tale. Rarely does the truth read so well as a story. Great piece of literature and I would recommend it for anyone interested in better understanding the trials of high mountain expedition in the remote areas of the Himalayas

Stunning. Inspiring. Poignant. Tasker shares his too short life in all it's raw glory. A book to humble any aspiring climber or writer. Read it.
