    A graphic adventure narra-tive that delves into why we pursue the wild outdoors

    Companion book to the lm Drawn, now showing in the traveling Banff Film Festival

    Captures the emotion of adventure through the soulful vibe of visual art

    Authors art is among the most in uential in the world of climbing

    Includes two removable postcards created by author

    Shivering in a cave beneath Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia, artist and rock climber Jeremy Collins had an intense and anxious vision, both geographic and artistic, about his life and what he was doing with it. As a result, he left Argentina and commenced on a four-year journey that took him in the four cardinal directions from his home in Kansas Citynorth, south, east, westto create art in the wild, climb new routes, and live out his own map. Drawn: The Art of Ascent shares his exploits, his art, and what he discovered about balancing wilderness adventure with peace at home.

    At home, Jeremy has a wife and two children whose existence leave him constantly asking himself, Why am I here on this mountain instead of with them? The answer is gradually revealed through his heartfelt journey, an intimate visual exploration of how one reconciles family, career, and personal passion. Based on Jeremys sketchbooks kept over the course of pursuing and achieving four different summits, Drawn is not a snow, ice, gloom-and-doom or cut-the-ropes adventure; rather, it is about a contemplative dad with dreams he desires to share with his family in a way that both honors them and remains true to his personal goals. With climbing as a catalyst, he fi nds a more fully-realized approach to life.

    Jeremys art is a rich and textured mixed media of pencil, charcoal, watercolor, torn paper, and photographs; he often features pages from his in-situ sketchbooks and hand-written text. Some of the photographs he uses were contributed by climbing partners, who include Corey Rich, James Q Martin, Tommy Caldwell, Hayden Kennedy, Mark Jenkins, and Mikey Schaefer. Each of the four fi rst ascents also features a hand-drawn topo map.

    As an illustrator, storyteller, fi lm director, and exploratory rock climber, Jeremy Collins maintains a vast repertoire of skills. His illustrative art is frequently featured in Rock and Ice and Alpinist magazines, in numerous books, and on a variety of outdoor-adventure products. He is also an accomplished climber, having pioneered more than 300 new routes in the United States. Jeremy lives with his wife and children in Kansas City. Visit him at www.jercollins.com.

    Long before instant media, Eric Shipton wandered off the grid, only to re-emerge from the wild with new information that subsequent adventurers would build reputations upon One of the greatest explorers of the 20th century

    Shiptons Everest explorations set the stage for its conquest by Edmund Hillary

    Eric Shipton was an adventurer when adventure meant traveling to places for which no maps existed, scaling mountains whose heights were uncalculated, and encountering people whom no westerner had ever met. That Untravelled World, originally published in 1969, is his autobiography, written near the end of his career, when the passing of time had deepened his re ections on his many accomplishments and companions.

    Shiptons story begins with his early childhood, his fi rst climbs in the Alps, his decision to be a coffee farmer rather than attend university, and his early climbs in Africa. He recounts his introduction to Bill Tilman, through a letter Tilman sent asking for advice about climbing Mount Kenya. This introduction led to one of the most famous climbing partnerships in historyas bonded in pursuit of adventure as Holmes and Watson were in solving crimes.

    In 1951 Shipton led an expedition to explore the south side of Everest. His small party of four (plus Sherpas) explored Everests Western Cwm to determine if the South Col could be climbed from there. In 1952, unable to get a permit to climb Everest, Shipton and his team climbed eleven mountains between 21,000 and 23,000 feet, and a number of smaller peaks. Shipton was expected to be named the leader of the momentous 1953 British Everest expedition but, surprisingly, John Hunt was chosen instead. Of the slight, Shipton wrote, I had often deplored the exaggerated publicity accorded to Everest expeditions and the consequent distortion of values. Yet, when it came to the point, I was far from pleased to withdraw from this despised limelight; nor could I fool myself that it was only the manner of my rejection that I minded.

    Shipton soon redirected his disappointment into new adventures in the Americas, never to return to the Himalaya.

    eric Shipton participated in fi ve Everest expeditions, made the fi rst ascent of Mount Kenyas Nelion Peak, and with Bill Tilman he reached the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. With Frank Smythe he climbed to the summit of Kamet (25,447 feet)at the time, the highest summit ever attained. He wrote six other mountain travel and exploration books that Mountaineers Books has published in an omnibus edition.

    The colorful and exciting life story of a forgotten alpine climber of the 20th century Biography of a seminal, but often unheralded, gure in high-altitude

    climbing

    Written by his son, Tony; Frank Smythe was himself a proli c author

    Important addition to Mountaineer Books Legends and Lore series

    Frank Smythe, like Eric Shipton, is associated with early Everest explorations and was a member of three expeditions to the mountain. At a time when it was ungentlemanly to make a living by climbing, Smythe wrote more than a dozen popular books based upon his travels to high placestravels that included making the fi rst ascent of Kamet (25,447 feet) in 1931, which was the fi rst time any climber had reached so high a summit. Two years later, he reached the highest point climbed on Everest (28,200 feet). He also climbed in Britain, the Alps, Canada, and Alaska. He and Graham Brown established two new routes on the Brevna face of Mont Blanc. In short, he has serious climbing credentials.

    As the title hints, this is a biography by Franks son Tony, but it isnt based solely on personal memories; Frank was away from home for long periods and died when Tony was only fourteen. Instead, this book is based on thirteen years of research: Franks parents meeting and marriage, Franks early school years, his fi rst climbs, his training for various jobs, his gradual rise to fame and fortune, his friendships, his war years, and his sudden death are all covered. Like his father, Tony has a strong understanding of how to tell a story that appeals to both climbers and general lovers of nonfi ction adventures.

    tony Smythe was born in 1934. After leaving school he joined the Royal Air Force, serving for eight years as a pilot ying Canberras and Javelins before resigning to devote more time to climbing and traveling. His many expeditions took him to the Alps, the Himalayas, Eastern Europe and Russia, Canada, Alaska, and South America. He has lectured and written extensively for journals and magazines about his adventures. He lives with his wife in Kendal, Cumbria, United Kingdom.

    OV E R T H E E D G EA TRUE STORY OF KIDNAP AND ESCAPE IN THE MOUNTAINS OF CENTRAL ASIA

    GREG CHILD

    avaiLaBLe in MarCH

    "In Over the Edge, Greg Child embeds the gripping drama of four young American climbers taken hostage in Kyrgyzstan within a profound account of the geopolitics of radical Islam. Its an amazing story, amazingly told, by one of the best adventure writers of our time. David Roberts

    A different sort of true climbing adventurethis one with terrorists, kidnappings, and AK47s

    New afterword by the author

    First time in paperback

    Before dawn on August 12, 2000, four of Americas best young rock climbersthe oldest of them only 25were asleep in their portaledges high on the Yellow Wall in the Pamir-Alai mountain range of Kyrgyzstan. Awoken by gunfi re at daybreak, they were kidnapped by fanatical militants of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), which operates out of secret bases in Tajikistan and Afghanistan and is linked to Al Qaeda. The kidnappers, themselves barely out of their teens, intended to use their hostages as human shields and for ransom money as they moved across Kyrgyzstan. They hid the climbers by day and marched them by night through freezing, treacherous mountain terrain, with little food, no clean water, and the constant threat of execution.

    The four climbersTommy Caldwell, Beth Rodden, Jason Singer Smith, and John Dickeywould see a fellow hostage, a Kyrgyz soldier, executed before their eyes. And in a remarkable life-and-death crucible over six terrifying days, they would be forced to choose between saving their own lives and committing murder themselves.

    Greg Child is a world-class rock climber, mountaineer, author, and fi lmmaker. He is a writer for Outside magazine and has authored several books, including Thin Air: Encounters in the Himalayas, Mixed Emotions: Mountaineering Writings of Greg Child, Postcards from the Ledge, and Climbing Free (co-authored with Lynn Hill). In 1987, Child was honored with the American Alpine Clubs Literary Award for his prolifi c and insightful mountaineering literature. In 2011 Child was president of the jury for mountaineerings coveted Piolet dOr. He lives in Castle Valley, Utah.

    L I G H T I N G O U TA GOLDEN YEAR IN YOSEMITE AND THE WEST

    DANIEL DUANE

    avaiLaBLe in MarCH

    On the granite faces of Yosemite, Duanes prose comes most alive . . . . Lively and engaging. Kirkus Reviews

    The contrast between the slacker climbing crowd and the New Age poseurs is enhanced by a wonderfully deadpan writing style that is rarely too technical for those unfamiliar with the sport. Highly recommended. Library Journal

    [Duane] explores with ne irony and rare depth his awakening into manhood, love, and conquest Isabel Allende

    Well-regarded coming-of-age memoir about Yosemite and the West Coast in the 1990s

    With a new afterword by the author

    Lighting Out by Daniel Duane is fi rst and foremost, a coming-of-age memoir. But its also about the Yosemite climbing lifestyle in the early 1990s and the authors effort to immerse himself in that dirtbag world while fi guring out what to do with his life. It beautifully evokes a specifi c time and place, as well as captures that post-college searching and desire for adventure and romance that resonates for so many. From the Grateful Dead to an awkward tumble into a relationship, and from California surf towns to the sheer wall of El Cap, Duanes story journeys through loosely linked events and observations that, taken together, convey a tangible sense of freedom and the search for fulfi llment.

    daniel duane actively climbed in the Yosemite Valley from 1987 to 1992, then went on to get a PhD in American literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Lighting Out was his fi rst book, published two years before his seminal cult favorite, Caught Inside: A Surfers Year on the California Coast. His most recent book is How to Cook Like a Man: A Memoir of Cookbook Obsession. Mountaineers Books is proud to reissue Lighting Out, for which Daniel has written a new afterword describing his ultimately successful climb of El Cap and his introduction of his two young daughters to Yosemites signature big wall. He lives with his family in San Francisco; learn more at www.danielduane.com.

    Americas Sagebrush Sea is one of its most extensive natural landscapes, yet this sensitive ecosystem is unprotected and being fragmented by development

    Reveals a little-known yet iconic Western landscape that supports a vast network of western wildlife species

    A conservation priority area for Audubon, World Wildlife Fund, and the National Wildlife Federation

    Located on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains and stretching from Greater Yellowstone to Telluride, Colorado, the region known as the Sagebrush Sea is a unique wildlife habitat with an abundance of natural resources. For this reason it is treasured by conservationists, private land owners, and energy developers alike.

    In the eyes of organizations such as Audubon and the World Wildlife Fund, the loss of this habitat would be catastrophic for important species like the Greater and Gunnisons Sage-grouse. Greater Sage-grouse were once found across thirteen western states, but due to energy development and conversion of land for agriculture, they now inhabit only half of their historic range.

    In addition, the gradual disappearance of sagebrush habitat in the West is having a profound effect on other wildlife species such as the Brewers sparrow, sage sparrow, sage thrasher, pygmy rabbit, mule deer, pronghorn, and more. Sage Spirit features these species and the threats they face. In photos and text Dave Showalter documents the seasonal changes, animal behaviors, and migrations within the Sagebrush Sea. He is working with conservation leaders, government agencies, Native communities, and private landowners to tell the complete story of the ecosystem, including human use of the landscape.

    dave Showalter is a full-time conservation photographer with a focus on the American West. He is the author/photographer of the award-winning book Prairie Thunder. As a result of his work on that book, Showalter became involved with Not 1 More Acre, a ranchers conservation group, as well as with prairie dog relocations. His photo credits include Outside, Outdoor Photographer, Defenders, Wilderness, All Animals, High Country News, Backpacker, National Geographic Books, and others. Showalter is the photographer for Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, where he also teaches photography to inner-city kids and adults. He is a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers and lives in Arvada, Colorado, with his wife, Marla, and their adopted yellow lab, Abby.

    Write a road cycling guidebook and youre invariably asked a handful of requisite questions. most are tough to answer. best scenery? Hard to pick just one ride. Favorite route? too many great options to choose from. but when the inevitable questionwhich is the hardestcomes up, there is no hesitation. in Colorado, it is Pikes Peak.

    the road to this 14,115-foot summit is so steep that visitors arriving by automobile are advised to not use air conditioning on the way up to help avoid potential engine failure. and on the way down all cars are stopped to have brake temperature measured. anything over 300 degrees and drivers are directed to a nearby parking lot for a mandatory thirty-minute cool down.

    For cyclists, travel advice is simple but critical. Carry adequate clothing to deal with potential thirty- to forty-degree temperature swings, and be ready to pedal uphill for three to four hours, knowing that most of that time will be above 10,000 feet where oxygen is in decidedly short supply. if you have access to a bike with a compact crank set-up, ride it. easier to spin up this seemingly endless ascent that averages 6 percent with numerous pitches above 10.

    but more than just a grueling test of fitness, this ride encompasses so much of what makes riding bikes in Colorado such a treasured experience. spectacular scenery, alluring adventure, out-of-the-way exploration, and the chance to achieve a significant sense of accomplishment are all part of the package.

    For years the twisting two-lane road up Pikes Peak was closed to bikes, save for a handful of special events. but when rules changed in early 2013, it was time to take on this trek myself. along for the ride was my wife Lisa, whod never been to the top of any of Colorados fifty-three 14,000-foot peaksby foot, car, or bike. the ensuing day remains one of my fondest memories, cycling or otherwise.

    to neither of our surprise the scenery was otherworldly. Pikes Peak is after all americas most visited mountain, the inspirational setting for the song america the beautiful, written by katherine Lee bates while she was taking in the summits spectacular panorama.

    but its the sheer sense of discovery and accomplishment that remains forefront in my mind. using little more than leg and lung power, we climbed roughly 7,200 feet in 19.4 miles, passing through three distinct ecosystems (and much self-doubt) along the way. not only is cycling a vehicle to get you from a to b, its a unique pathway into the human psyche, a conduit to finding out just how much effort youre willing to put forth to reach a new height, set a Pr, or simply venture to an unfamiliar place.

    not all rides need be tests of will. indeed, some of the best are simply bike path spins with friends or family. but when you do feel like testing yourself, the bike is an ideal tool. and that answers one of the other oft-asked requisite questions. What was the best part about writing 75 Classic Rides: Colorado? riding a bike all over the state, of course.
