Description - Teewinot by Jack Turner

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.
