Ghosts cover copyHere’s “The Savage Mountain,” my review of The Ghosts of K2: The Epic Saga of the First Ascent by Mick Conefrey in the February 6 & 7, 2016 edition of The Wall Street Journal.

Check out this K2 documentary Conefrey made for the BBC. Exciting stuff.

 

Enduring Patagonia paperbackTo present my credentials to comment on climbing, here’s my alpine memoir, Enduring Patagonia (Random House, 2001), which TheCultureTrip picked as one of the ten best books ever written about Argentina.

 

Again, here’s my full list of book reviews–for The WSJ, The Washington Post, NPR Books, and others. (In total, this is the 23rd.)

      Glad you enjoyed the review, Jonathan. I viscerally understand the appeal–to reach that spot first? Worth it in every way. ;-)
