Description

In the past few years, as writing about the outdoors has moved from a minority genre into the mainstream, climbers, adventurers, and environmental activists have gathered at the Banff Centre in the Canadian Rockies to explore their passions through writing. Now, their most inspired work is collected in one volume, Rock, Paper, Fire: the Best of Mountain and Wilderness Writing, compiled by Banff Mountain and Wilderness Program Faculty Editors Marni Jackson and Tony Whittome, and introduced by award-winning writer and veteran tree planter Charlotte Gill. This wide-ranging anthology of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry is about discovering the real excitement of the earth's wild places and their effects on the human creative spirit.
