Dougal Haston: The Philosophy Of Risk Reviews


"A worthy homily to one of the gaints of mountaineering that will delight committed fans."
"Dougal Haston was not only one of Britain's most outstanding moun]taineers, he was the closest to being a cult figure."
"Connor's skill is to look beneath the facts--the amazing exploits on Everest, Mount McKinley and Eiger--and explore the unique mix of arrogance, loneliness, and steel which drove Haston. If Connor cannot quite anwer the question why, then he goes as far to answering it as it is possible for ordinary mortals to go."
