Legendary Mountaineer of California's Sierra Nevada
Robert C. Pavlik, foreword by Steve Roper
This compelling biography details the amazing life of legendary mountaineer Norman Clyde (1885-1972). Clyde is credited with more than 130 first ascents throughout western North America, and more first ascents in the Sierra Nevada than anyone else.
"The word unique is often used inappropriately, but after you read this book I would wager that you can't think of a better word for this prodigious individual."
––Steve Roper, from the Foreword
