"The Evidence of Things Not Seen: A Mountaineer's Tale"

by W. H. Murray

Mountaineering Book Review:  W. H. Murray's The Evidence of Things Not Seen

Publisher's Book Description

"Scottish winter climbing in the 1930s, desert combat against Rommel's forces, three years in Nazi prison camps, and a near fatal accident in the Alps were key influences in W.H.Murray's early life. He then took part in three exploratory Himalayan ventures and built a reputation as a writer and environmental polemicist. These memoirs give an insight into the life and times of one of our most erudite mountain commentators."


Publisher's Author Description

"W.H. Murray was a major figure in climbing, environmental affairs and letters. His autobiography completed shortly before his death in 1996 has thus been eagerly awaited."
