The author recorded his adventures on the mountains of the world. There is nothing to compare with the grandeur of the mountains, and the feeling that envelopes you when the world opens up and one can see for hundreds of miles in all directions.
by Aubrey le Blond - E. P. Dutton & Company
Mountaineering is not merely walking up hill. It is the art of getting safely up and down a peak where there is no path, and where steps may have to be cut in the ice; it is the art of selecting the best line of ascent under conditions which vary.
by Arnold Lunn - Williams and Norgate
Alpine exploration is mental as well as physical, and concerns itself with the adventures of the mind in touch with the mountains as well as with the adventures of the body in contact with a cliff. Sir Arnold Lunn was a skier, mountaineer and writer.
