The Games Climbers Play

A selection of one hundred mountaineering articles

Edited by Ken Wilson

Forward by Al Alvarez

Mountaineering lends itself to inspiring writing and the diversity of mountain literature is one of the great glories of the sport. There are many books, articles, essays, narratives and poems in which we can take great pride. The two linked anthologies The Games Climbers Play and Mirrors in the Cliffs capture a fine cross section of such material. The Games Climbers Play concentrates on post-war magazine and journal pieces.
