WINNER OF THE 2001 BOARDMAN TASKER
WINNER THE 2001 BANFF MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL GRAND PRIX
Hazard’s Way is the story of a young man’s development and his struggles to cope with strict 19th-century Edwardian family life, with conflicting attitudes toward the Boer War, and with the contradictory influences of the friends he makes in his life as a climber. It is a story of change, the inevitable conflicts between generations, and the young pushing the limits of impossible beyond those of their elders.
The novel is a marvelous evocation of the climbing lifestyle at Wastdale Head in England’s Lake District, and it is set among the company of actual climbers from the period – Oppenheimer, Collie, the Abrahams, and Montague. It culminates in a crisis that all climbers will recognize: a crossroads of intuition and ego.
