Critique:

Aside from being beautiful, it s also thought-provoking, highly intelligent, immensely cultured in ways we might not expect from a book dealing for the most part with the nomadic, physical culture of international rock-climbing...There is so much in this book: from epiphanic beginnings as a fourteen-year-old on Pentire Head, where the rock, traced with delicate veins, fused and made visible the ancient life of the earth, and in his young mind was as if a fault had cracked open , to a long road-trip through Indonesia on an ancient Soviet motor-bike, to the beautiful women he meets and the exquisite, outrageously difficult new rock-climbs in places like the Lofoten Islands, Pickford strikes not a single crass or discordant note throughout. Ignore that price-tag. Treat yourself! --Jim Perrin

The coffee table picture book can degenerate all too easily into bland prettiness, but David Pickford s debut delights and surprises with its breadth of vision...Fun, adventure, thoughtfulness, artistry ... just some of the ingredients of this beautifully produced celebration of the elemental world . The cover price is quite hefty, but, as with most things in life, you gets what you pays for. --Stephen Venables
