This riveting account of one of the most notable personalities of the mountain climbing world reconstructs the life of legendary mountaineer
Norman Clyde (1885-1972).
He made his mark on history with more than one hundred and thirty first ascents throughout western North America, and many believe he knew the High Sierra better than anyone else, including John Muir.
Part of his mystique comes from participating in high-profile mountain rescues and recoveries, in which he is credited with saving a number of lives. Those who had the good fortune to meet him—often with a ninety-pound pack on his back that included an anvil for boot repair, fishing rods, cooking pots, and books in Greek and Latin—never forgot the experience.

"between the pioneers and the rock climbers."
