About this title:
Synopsis:
The wilderness-forest, desert, glacier, jungle-has been the scene of the past century's most exciting stories, inspiring many of its greatest writers, including Jack London, Norman Maclean, Evelyn Waugh, Redmond O'Hanlon, Sir Wilfred Thesiger, H.M. Tomlinson and Algernon Blackwood.

Selections from these authors' most gripping works are delivered by equally compelling narration producing an audiobook experience ideal for people who are fascinated by the beauty, insight and danger that awaits us all in the wild.


About the Author:
Editor Clint Willis has been a climber and an armchair mountaineer since he was ten years old. His writing has appeared in more than 100 publications, including Men's Journal, Outside, Rock & Ice, The New York Times and Worth. He lives with his wife and two sons in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

From AudioFile:
This is one of a series designed to tap into the recent demand for adventure started by Jon Krakauer's Everest saga. In fact, these stories are not all nonfiction--Evelyn Waugh's "Man Who Liked Dickens" comes from his novel HANDFUL OF DUST and "The Willows," a supernatural canoeing story set in the Danube swamps, comes straight from the imagination of Algernon Blackwood. Some of these stories have more poetry than real peril; all are well read. In fact, the audio form could be more exciting than the prose. The closest to Krakauer is Norman Maclean's "Young Men & Fire," the true tale of a smoke-jumping disaster. As individual stories, all the contents have merit. As a collection, they don't hang together too well. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
