Where the Mountains Throw Their Dice

Paul Hersey

Publisher:New Holland Publishers (NZ) Ltd

There are regular reports in the media of mountaineering fatalities and costly rescues, and to some of us climbing may seem a selfish and crazy game in which victims have only themselves to blame. But to Dunedin climber Paul Hersey climbing is nothing less than a reason for living; even if - or perhaps even because - at the most life-affirming moments he may be just one step from 'a tumble into the abyss'. In this fascinating book, which includes white-knuckle accounts of his own climbs in the South Island and the Italian Alps, Paul chats with some of New Zealand's most experienced climbers, such as Bill McLeod, Lydia Bradey and Erik Monasterio, to find out why they are drawn to the mountains, and why, even after losing close friends, they keep returning to this place of 'other-worldly limbo'. Accompanying the text are Paul's spectacular photographs from his own climbs.
