Product Description


"The most splendid memorial that Patey could have... No mountain writer has ever made me laugh so much." W. H. Murray "The most entertaining climbing book I have ever read...Magnificent." Chris Bonington "His writings in prose and verse...will be remembered and sung as long as there is climbing." Chris Brasher "The fierce zest he felt in rock and ice is seasoned with a nice dry humour, and a talent for throwaway lines quite in the Mummery tradition." The Times Literary Supplement "Patey's company is the most enjoyable in the whole canon of climbing writing...incomparable." Jim Perrin

About the Author

Tom Patey (1932-1970) was, at the time of his death, the local GP in Ullapool, a fishing port in north-west Scotland near some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. It was his territory. But it is for his unique character that Tom Patey is still so widely remembered, and missed. No other man has combined his talents as a serious mountaineer, a ribald entertainer, a maker of ballads and a writer of prose and verse. Chris Bonington needs no introduction. A close friend of Patey's, he climbed with him on many occasions and his introduction provides a moving tribute to him.
