More About A Walk in the Clouds by Kev Reynolds
 
 
 
Overview
A Walk in the Clouds: 50 Years Among the Mountains is a heartwarming, inspirational, and evocative collection of memories and short stories from Kev Reynolds, a prolific and celebrated guidebook author who has been roaming the mountains for a half-century. These recollections trail Reyonlds' journeys through some of his favorite and most memorable lessons learned on the mountains. The people met, experiences shared, and cultures bridged throughout Reynolds' travels make for an engaging read for hikers and non-hikers alike. Shadowing Reynolds across the Moroccan Atlas, the Pyrenees trails, the European Alps, and even the Himalayas gives the reader the feeling not only of hiking the trails, but also of forming the relationships and connections throughout the world that Reynolds was able to create. This book motivates the common reader to undertake something they have never done before because, as the reader learns from Reynolds, that is where some of the best experiences come from.

Famed British climber and author of dozens of climbing and trekking guidebooks Reynolds reminiscences about a life spent roaming the world's great mountain ranges in this compilation of excursion stories. Unlike a guide or an expedition journal that chronicles a particular ascent, this volume encapsulates the feel and the mood of adventure. Gleaned from various journals and articles spanning his entire career, Reynold's vignettes provide unique and intimate snapshots of sunrises from mountaintops, scrambles up scree-covered slopes and through mountain mist, crossing dangerous mountain glaciers, riding out mountaintop storms, and sharing tea with shepherds in remote valleys. The sort of volume that can be picked up and enjoyed randomly here and there in a spare moment, each of Reynold's memories vividly transports the reader to the world's high places. These charming anecdotes shared from a driven life will inspire trekkers and climbers while satisfying armchair explorers as well. (Apr.)
