With climbing as my compass, and writing as my vehicle, I’ve been across the American West, down perilous mountain roads in India and Morocco, through chaotic cities in China and Thailand, and among the untamed wilds of Chilean and Argentine Patagonia.

Mountaineers Books was established in 1960 by volunteers of The Mountaineers, first to make our climbing knowledge available in the form of Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills (the world's best-selling climbing instructional text). That book spawned our publishing division, Mountaineers Books, which has grown along with our Pacific Northwest programs to get people into wilderness areas and build a community of advocates for wild places.
