The boys of Everest : Chris Bonington and the tragedy of climbing's greatest generation by Clint Willis( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 608 libraries worldwide
"This book tells the story of Bonington's Boys: a band of climbers who reinvented mountaineering during the three decades after Everest's first ascent. It is a story of tremendous courage, astonishing achievement, and heart-breaking loss. Chris Bonington's inner circle included a dozen of mountaineering's most legendary figures, who gave birth to a new brand of climbing. They took increasingly terrible risks on now-legendary expeditions to the world's most fearsome peaks - and they paid an enormous price. Most of them died in the mountains, leaving behind the hardest question of all: was it worth it?" "The Boys of Everest offers the closest thing to an answer we'll ever have. The book draws on interviews with surviving climbers and others as well as a half-century of expedition accounts, journals, letters and memoirs. It offers riveting descriptions of what Bonington's Boys found in the world's highest mountains - as well as an understanding of what they lost there."--BOOK JACKET

The Lawrence Durrell travel reader by Lawrence Durrell( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 417 libraries worldwide
Notes on travel from the Mediterranean's sharpest observerFew men have traveled as wisely as Lawrence Durrell. Born in India, he lived in Corfu as a young man, enjoying salt air, cobalt water, and an unfettered bohemian lifestyle. Over the following decades, he rambled around the Mediterranean, making homes in Egypt, Cyprus, and Greece. Each time he moved, he asked himself why he felt compelled to travel. In this book, he gives his answer. Durrell knew that the wise traveler looks not for pleasure, education, or landmarks, but is hungry for a sense of place-the element of a landscape, city, or nation that makes its people who they are. In this anthology, passages from Durrell's classic Mediterranean writings are paired with observations on other lands. His writing is poetic, lush, and achingly clear, for this was a man who truly saw the world
