The Wild Within and Freedom Climbers now available
- Monday 27 February 2012
We secured a deal in 2011 to bring Freedom Climbers to the UK. One of the most important mountaineering books for several years, it scooped both the Grand Prize at the Banff Mountain Book Festival and then the Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature - not many books have won both these prizes.
The Wild Within is the third book from British mountaineer and adventurer Simon Yates. In The Wild Within Simon recounts tales of first ascents of remote peaks in the Cordillera Darwin range in South America, and the Wrangell-St Elias ranges on the Alaska-Yukon border. Through the book Simon comments on the changes to the mountain wilderness and the advance of modern communications technology into the wild. He also grapples with his new role as a family man, and a film star – appearing in the adaptation of Joe Simpson's Touching the Void.
The Wild Within is available in hardback and signed copies are available direct from Vertebrate. It will be available very shortly in ebook formats.
