Hazard’s Way

Author(s): Hubank, Roger

Copyright: 2001, UK
Specifications: 8vo, pp.248, wraps
Condition: fine

Hubank’s novel, set around the turn of the 19th century, concerns a young man's development and his struggles to cope with strict Edwardian family life, with conflicting attitudes towards the Boer War, and with the contradictory influences of the friends he makes in his other life as a climber. Much of the novel involves a marvelous invocation of life at Wasdale Head and the company of actual characters - Openheimer, Collie, the Abrahams, Montague. It culminates in a crisis that all climbers will recognize.

"Hubank's new book, Hazard's Way, is quite simply a masterpiece, ... the finest piece of fictional writing around the subject of mountaineering ever to have been published in this country ..." - Jim Perrin.

Winner of the 2001 Boardman-Tasker Award for Mountaineering Literature and the 2001 Banff Mountain Book Festival Grand Prize.
