Review:
The ideal book for nostalgic hillwalkers and climbers of the '60s, even just the armchair and public house variety... humorous, entertaining, informative, written by two men with obvious expertise, knowledge and love of their subject. - SCOTS INDEPENDENT The doings, sayings, incongruities and idiosyncracies of the denizens of the bothy underworld... An authentic picture of this part of the climbing scene in latter-day Scotland, which like any good picture, will increase in charm over the years. - IAIN SMART, SCOTTISH MOUNTAINEERING CLUB JOURNAL [This] must be the only complete dosser's guide ever put together. - ALISTAIR BORTHWICK, author of the immortal 1930s classic, Always a Little Further
About the Author:
Dave Brown started climbing in 1960, spending much of his formative years in the Trossachs, the Arrochar Alps and Glencoe, where he met some of the great characters of the early climbing scene. He has worked for the Colorado Outward Bound School as a senior instructor and later with the British Columbia Outward School. After escaping the rigours of a working life in Further Education, Dave has set up a small guiding business and earns a modest living from passing his invaluable knowledge of the hills down to new generations.Ian Mitchell started climbing and walking in the Cairngorms in the 1960s. He has an extensive knowledge of the Scottish mountains and has also scaled peaks in Iceland, Norway, the Pyrenees, Morocco and the Austrian Alps. Ian also broke free from a career in Further Education to pursue his dream of writing full-time. He is the successful author of several prize-winning books on the culture and history of walking. In 1998 he won the Outdoor Writers' Guild Award for Excellence for 'Scotland's Mountains Before the Mountaineers' and his books are seen as an attempt to encourage a return to walking.
