July’s book club will discuss Tom Patey’s collection of essays, One Man’s Mountains, published in 1971, a year after his death.   The book includes song verses as well, such as “The Manchester Delinquent’s Song”,and  “Onward Christian Bonington”.

Read the whole book on Google Books or check it out from the library if you are an AAC member.

Patey achieved first ascents in Lochnagar and neighboring Cairngorms, Scotland, the Alps and the Himalayas, particularly Muztagh Tower in 1956 and his climbing partners included Sir Chris Bonington and Hamish MacInnes.  The book has been deemed a classic, to be read and re-read.  Come tell us what you think!  Book Club meets from 6:30-8:30 in the American Mountaineering Center.  Stop by the library to find out which room.
