Reviews
A beautifully written and sure-footed history of mountaineering "before Everest," full of wonderful stories and spanning continents and centuries. A splendid debut.--Sir Ranulph Fiennes, author of Cold and Shackleton
Daniel Light guides the reader through a mountainscape that stretches from the Alps to the Himalaya...with the sure footing of a serious student of climbing history, and the élan of a skilled storyteller.--Maurice Isserman, author of Continental Divide
The White Ladder neatly bridges a lacuna in the history of mountaineering. In elegant prose Dan Light tracks the trials and achievements of the little-known climbers who preceded and inspired the great Himalayan expeditions of the mid-twentieth century.--John Keay, author of Himalaya and When Men and Mountains Meet
