Curran’s in-depth biography of Britain’s best known mountaineer examines Bonington’s deepest motives and reveals the joys and occasional despair of living a life at the limits of physical and mental experiences. Bonington has had an amazing career with numerous expeditions on such peaks as the Eiger, Annapurna, Nuptse, Everest, Changabang, K2, The Ogre, Kongur, Menlungste, Panch Chuli, Sepu Kangri, and many more. Curran himself is no armchair author. He was a member of four Bonington expeditions in addition to expeditions to Trango Tower and K2. A very good read and includes a foreward by Messner.
