Aspiring : Mountain Climbing is No Cure for Middle-age
Kelly, Kieran

 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. As New/. First Edition. 286 pages. Multiple copies of this title available. This book is an unread copy. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. Aged 54, Kieran Kelly, a man terrified of heights, decided to learn to climb mountains. It was a decision taken to ward off his fears of ageing, and to fill the void in his life left as his children grew up and moved away from home. On the perilous slopes of Mount Aspiring in New Zealand, Kieran was to discover more than just how to climb mountains. Forced by the brutal realities of the mountain to confront his real motivations for taking up such a dangerous sport, Kieran found himself reliving a past he would rather not have remembered. Aspiring is a book about what drives men, and how much our past shapes the people we are. It is also a thrilling account of the experience of climbing for the first time, with all its terror and elation. Gripping, stark and powerful, Aspiring examines the way we overcome our inner demons, as well as our outer fears. Quantity Available: 6. Category: Mountaineering; Biography & Autobiography.

The Maverick Mountaineer : The remarkable life of George Ingle Finch: Climber, Scientist, Inventor
Wainwright, Robert
ISBN: 9781760113490
Allen & Unwin,  2016. 
 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Very Good/. . 416 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine has minimal reading creases. Edges of pages are lightly browned. . Previous owner's name in ink. In the spring of 1901 a teenager stood on top of a hill, gazed out in wonderment at the Australian landscape and decided he wanted to be a mountaineer. Two decades later, the same man stood in a blizzard beneath the summit of Mount Everest, within sight of his goal to be the first to stand on the roof of the world. George Finch was at the highest point ever reached by a human being and only his decision to save the life of his stricken companion stopped him from reaching the summit. George Finch was a rebel of the first order, a man who dared to challenge the British establishment who disliked his independence, background, long hair and lack of an Oxbridge education. Despite this, he not only became one of the world's greatest alpinists, earning the grudging respect of his rival George Mallory, but pioneered the use of the artificial oxygen that enabled Everest to finally be conquered thirty years after his own attempt. A renowned scientist, a World War I hero and a Fellow of the Royal Society, involved in the development of some of the twentieth century's most important inventions, his skills helped save London from burning to the ground during the Blitz. Finch's public accomplishments, however, were shadowed by his complicated private life and his fraught relationship with his son, the actor Peter Finch. Acclaimed biographer Robert Wainwright restores George Finch to his rightful place in history with this remarkable tribute to one of the twentieth century's most eccentric anti-heroes. 'One of the two best Alpinists of his time - Mallory was the other.' The Times Quantity Available: 1. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Mountaineering. ISBN/EAN: 9781760113490.
