I have now read three of the five books in this set and must say that I have enjoyed the reading. This book has given me a great deal of pleasure due to the content of the book. Each story that is told by the orignal author is in itself a part of climbing history. When you read the words that were written at the time of some of the adventures, you must travel back to days they were written. The equipment and the way the individuals climbed is all brought back to the reader. Some of the climbers are known to myself, but some, have been lost to my memory and the memory of others and this book has brought back the names, which will be researched for future reading. If you are going to write a book of this nature you must make it worth reading and that is what Clint Willis has done, he has produced a book that has given me a very small part of 16 story's which have been told by the people that were there. I will be looking up some of the books that have been used to produce this book because if this is one part of the story, what is the rest of the book like.

Willis has selected well-written and exhilarating stories and assembled them in the fashion of a great short-story anthology. This book takes the reader through the entire range of human emotions, showing humans at their very best--as well as their worst. You might, at times, wonder why these people put their lives on the line, but you won't wonder why you bought this book.

If you are a new conver to himalayan mountaineering, this book covers some of the best extracts from the best stories. Particular favourites are from the other side of everest by Matt Dickinson and Everest the hard way by Doug Scott and the late Dougal Haston. If you think you may be interested, buy it . its very good

I would recommend this book as a great introduction to mountaineering tales, a 'boys own' style selection of snippets from some of the best works.
All of the twenty-odd chapters tell their own amazing tale, but its important to remember that these are a lot of short stories crammed into one book, therefore it can be frustrating when the chapter ends abruptly without knowing the outcomes of parts of the story, for example what happened to the guy who was struggling to keep up at the end of chapter two ?
It leaves you hungry for answers and encourages you to buy the book from which the excerpt was taken from. A good book for someone with a budding interest in the genre.
