Tom Longstaff, one of the great mountaineer-explorers, once decreed that ‘happiness is most often found by those who have learned to live in every moment of the present, [and] none has such prodigal opportunities of attaining that as the traveller.’
Spending more than half a century walking, trekking and climbing in various parts of the world as the man with the world’s best job, I’ve gathered a harvest of experience and adventure that have now been distilled in two volumes of memoirs: A Walk in the Clouds and Abode of the Gods. These narrative accounts should resonate with all who share my love for wild places and the people who inhabit them, for they reflect many of the previously untold background stories of days spent researching routes for my guidebooks.
