By Gavin Anderson
A novel about climbing in the golden days.
Gavin Anderson, KMC member for over 40 years, has written a novel and thought members may be interested.
The novel is a celebration of mountaineering in the early 60’s, so it is on ground familiar to the aforesaid elder statesmen. It is a story of a woman trying to break into the ranks of the very masculine Scot’s climbers of the period. The novel has a strong feminist slant.
Dennis Gray says;
“Your chapter with the epic on Ben Nevis, Observatory Ridge and the death of Dermot had me gripped. Congratulations on an outstanding work."
Joe Flynn says;
“Loved the brilliant descriptions of Forbes Aréte, living in the British shanties in Cham, references to Maurice and Bar National etc. absolutely spot on.”
