Product Description

This remarkable book contains several climbing stories, but is not so much about climbing as it is about a journey through life. Intermingled are excerpts from his life climbing in the northeast U.S. and various adventures in Alaska and some of the more colorful Denali characters. It is an entertaining portrait of the wilds meeting versions of humanity. Unlike many books written by mountaineers, Waterman is an excellent writer, which is much appreciated with the enjoyable reading of this book.

From the Back Cover
Rising more than twenty thousand feet into the Alaskan sky is Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. In his exhilarating and stunning narratives, Jonathan Waterman paints a startlingly intimate portrait of the white leviathan and brings to vivid life men and women whose fates have entwined on its sheer icy peak.
