9781898573760: Days to Remember: Adventures and reflections of a mountain guide

Shortlisted for the 2017 Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature. Days to Remember is a collection of tales from well-known mountain guide Rob Collister - tales of long days on the hill, travelling fast and light, often alone, and always steering well clear of the honeypots. From day trips around his local hills in Wales, to worldwide expeditions including the Silvretta Alps, Gletscherhorn, the Cordillera Blanca and Annapurna, Rob Collister enjoys covering ground under his own steam, whether it be walking, running, climbing, cycling or skiing. With a foreword from renowned British mountaineer and writer Stephen Venables, this collection of essays communicates Collister's connection with the history of the landscapes he explores, while demonstrating knowledge and appreciation of the flora and fauna that thrive there today. In Days to Remember we are reminded of the fragility of our natural environment and the importance of investing in its preservation, at the same time as being captivated by the beautiful images Collister evokes with his mountain tales. This book will leave you with expanded understanding of contemporary environmental issues and a renewed hunger for days in the hills.

About the Author:

Best known as an alpinist in his youth, Rob Collister was in his element climbing unnamed peaks in obscure corners of the Himalaya. In 1976 he qualified as a British Mountain Guide, and was one of the first British guides to ski the Haute Route with clients, soon taking parties to places such as Kashmir, Kulu, Alaska and the Lyngen Alps - long before they became popular destinations. Recently, concern about carbon emissions has led to a reduction in his expedition mountaineering and to the use of public transport to travel to and around the Alps. Throughout his career he has been based in North Wales, raising a family of three children with his wife Netti. He has been a trustee of the Snowdonia Society and the John Muir Trust, served as a nominated member of the Snowdonia National Park Authority and was president of the British Mountain Guides from 1990 to 1993. Rob has contributed to a number of anthologies and has written regularly for the Alpine Journal and other outdoor publications. His previous books include Lightweight Expeditions (Crowood Press), Over the Hills and Far Away (Ernest Press), and Snowdonia, Park under Pressure (Pesda Press).
