Mountaineering is among the more unusual pastimes - fraught with risk, its intrigue lies in its ability to attract more enthusiasts than it perhaps should. But why is this is case?
Robert MacFarlane, a mountaineer himself, tries to discover why so many have an emotional attachment to the world's highest peaks. Exploring topics including man's desire to explore, the pursuit of fear, geology and glaciers, the book concludes with an engaging account of George Mallory's attempt to ascent Everest in the 20s.
