Beschreibung:

In this compact, essential book, a veteran poet and inveterate outdoorsman explores the hidden histories of place, the psychology of aloneness, and the human condition in inhospitable spaces. The author of the celebrated novella The Man Who Walked to The Moon(see link below), McCord brings to life three of his desert walks in New Mexico and Iceland, and one particularly meaningful rock climbing ascent in real stories told by a natural raconteur. For its spirit of adventure, deep intelligence, well-crafted prose and generous wisdom, Walking to Extremes will be treasured both by the armchair adventurer and the most ardent backpacker. With one illustration and five photographs.
