In early 1978, an extraordinary new invention for rock climbers was featured on the BBC television science show Tomorrow's World. It was called the 'Friend', and it not only made the sport safer, it helped push the limits of the possible. The company that made them was called Wild Country, the brainchild of Mark Vallance. Within six months, Vallance was selling Friends in sixteen countries. Wild Country would go on to develop much of the gear that transformed climbing in the 1980s. Trenchant, provocative and challenging, Wild Country is a remarkable personal story and a fresh perspective on the role of the outdoors in British life and the development of climbing in its most revolutionary phase. Climbing Ramabang, Gerry Galligan's first book, is a bold and expansive travel diary recounting his assembling of a small team of Irish mountaineers and their attempts on unclimbed mountains and unexplored valleys in the remote corners of the Indian Himalaya. The Alpine Fourthousanders are fifty-two magnificent mountains that make up one of the mountaineering world’s major tick-list challenges. In All But One Barbara Swindin describes, with verve and honesty, her attempts to reach the summits, her triumphs and shortfalls, and her slowly dawning awareness that she just might become the first British woman to climb them all. Calculated Risk is a fictional portrayal of the world of mountaineering, of climbing the most demanding routes at a time when climbing was still emerging from its primitive inter-war and post war austerities and such routes were a stark struggle against the elements. The realities and tensions of big-time climbing, firmly focused on the Alps and the Himalaya, are revealed with greater clarity through the medium of fiction. Dermot Somers’ short stories have attracted international acclaim. His collection At the Rising of the Moon won the Boardman Tasker prize and was awarded the Banff Mountain Book Festival’s Literature and Culture Prize. Collected Short Stories brings together twenty-three of Somers' tales.
