Synopsis: A perennially popular mountaineering anthology from both sides of the Atlantic, showcasing the finest essays written on mountaineering and a plethora of more light-hearted and humorous items.

From the Back Cover: First published in Britain in 1978 and America 1980, The Games Climbers Play remains a perennially popular mountaineering anthology on both sides of the Atlantic - this is the fourth impression in Britain and the third in America. It contains some of the finest essays written on mountaineering and a plethora of more light-hearted and humorous items. The late Sheridan Anderson's cartoons and illustrations aptly reflect the rabelaisian nature of the selection. Unlike earlier anthologies, that drew their material by excepting from books, the bulk of the articles in Games are taken from contemporary magazines and journals and are (for the most part) unabridged. They have a freshness and immediacy often lacking from more painstakingly selected highbrow collections. A book that will both inspire and entertain. (5 1/4 x 8 1/2, 688 pages, illustrations, b&w photos)
