A Lifelong Love Affair with Mountains

Publisher: The A. G. Halldin Publishing Company, Inc., 1991 Indiana, PA.
ISBN: 0935648321 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback Inscribed by Author(s) 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall INSCRIBED on front endpaper: "Dear Clara, / It is pleasant to share my far flung / adventures with a student from long ago / whom I remember very vividly. ; May your adventures in life / be as fulfilling as mine have been. / Fondly, / John Filsinger / Tu profesor de anos pasados." "..He launched annual summer mountaineering odysseys which eventually led him to many of the world's great ranges. Frequently he guided for the Colorado Mountain Club or the Iowa Mountaineers at western climbing encampments and on foreign expeditions. His involvement in these ranged through the complexities and challenges of scouting, arranging, transporting, interpreting, and directing, as well as leading specific ascents..In all these adventures his personal offering went beyond secure leadership. Many fellow climbers shared an extra measure of beauty in the poetic exaltation he frequently felt and articulated along the mountain way. And two generations of language students not only had vivid contact with foreign cultures through his slide presentations, but experienced some of the excitement and beauty of mountaineering in far-off ranges as well. He brings that same emotional inspiration to his writings. His poems and narratives have appeared in climbing periodicals and journals for nearly forty years. Now, retired from teaching, he has found time to compose, in delicately crafted language, a full-length accounting of his Lifelong Love Affair With Mountains. Appropriate photographs (black-and-white and colored) complement every piece. An abiding reverence for the natural world underlies it all." Very well illustrated. 380 pages. Oversized trade paperback. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.
