Graham Wilson

Excellent condition, hardback 

From O G Jones and W P Haskett Smith to the modern guidebook, from early club articles to The Black Cliff, writing about the British hills has a long, varied and (mostly) honourable tradition. In A Rope of Writers Graham Wilson, mountain enthusiast, literature teacher and several-times author in the field himself, takes a shrewd, appreciative look at the genre. With characteristic idiosyncrasy, he leads the reader on a tour as diverse as the walks and climbs themselves, taking in essayists, fiction-writers, humorists, philosophers and even a hill fanzine, tracing the strands running through a century of mountaineering literature, and acknowledging the debt to those who went before.
