Short listed for 2000 Boardman Tasker Award Tom Price has been active in the outdoors throughout a long life: climbing, mountaineering, canoeing, camping, skiing, Antarctic exploration, and travelling in many lands have all been and remain great enthusiasms.Also throughout his life he has written evocatively and entertainingly about his experiences – early outings in the Lakes, surveying in South Georgia, climbing in the Alps, leading young and old parties in the wilds of Lesotho, a classic canoeing trip of 500 miles through the North West Territories, mountain rescue in the Lakes.The author was involved in outdoor education for many years and his radical views upon the need for a simple approach and for an emphasis on having fun are clearly argued. He writes sympathetic and illuminating portraits of friends made during his life in the mountains.
