The definitive story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Villain: The Life of Don Whillans (Paperback)
A great read if you are into climbing legends. Thoroughly researched, well written, revealing, full of evocative asides and personal notes. Perrin clearly understand the contexts of Don Whillans life; from post-war working-class roots, through gritstone climbing, to mountaineering, with some drinking and personality issues thrown in. You get it all, from climbing the highest peaks down to washing the dirty underwear!
