Teewinot by Jack Turner

Book Description

This is a book about a mountain range, its climbs, its weather and the glory of the wild. It is also about a small group of climbers, nomads, who inhabit the Teton Range each summer, who know it as intimately as it will ever be known. TEEWINOT is a remarkable account of what it is like to live and work in these spectacular mountains. It has something for everyone - spellbinding accounts of dangerous and deadly climbs, unbridled awe at the beauty of nature and an extreme passion for the environmental issues facing America today.

Awakening to Race by Jack Turner Awakening to Race, Paperback (October 2012)

The election of America's first black president has led many to believe that race is no longer a real obstacle to success and that remaining racial inequality stems largely from the failure of minority groups to take personal responsibility for seeking out opportunities. The author upends this view.
