9780882409078: Bradford Washburn, An Extraordinary Life: The Autobiography of a Mountaineering Icon

Here at last is the thrilling memoir of the legendary mountaineer Bradford Washburn, one of the last explorers and adventurers of the twentieth century. Drawing from decades of memories, journals, and an exquisite photographic collection, Washburn completes the self-portrait of a man drawn to altitude, from his first great climb of Mount Washington at age eleven, through numerous first ascents of peaks all over the world, to handily scaling a climbing wall at eighty-eight.
      Indeed, Washburn also became renowned for his pioneering work in aerial photography, his dedication to science and cartography, his decades of leading Boston’s Museum of Science, and his close association with the National Geographic Society.
      This mountaineering icon candidly offers an intimate look at a life devoted to the world’s highest places, to the friends who challenged the mountains with him, and to wife Barbara, who shared his adventures for nearly sixty-five years.

From the Author:

“I’ve never know a more hopeless feeling than to be jammed thirty feet below the surface in a cold clammy crack with a loose, useless rope dangling above me. Then a reassuring yell came. . . . The rope tightened and I started down again. Deeper and deeper I descended. The light got dimmer as I started sliding off, down under the overhang.”

                                                                                    Bradford Washburn
