Quicklet on Jon Krakauer's Eiger Dreams: Ventur...

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK Eiger Dreams by Jon Krakauer is an anthology of articles published by various magazines during the mid-to-late 1980s. This collection consists of his earliest works, predating the books that launched him to the top of the bestseller list: Into The Wild (1996), and Into Thin Air (1997) Krakauer does an admirable job of addressing the central issues so even the casual hiker can appreciate his passion, as climbing is a sport that can be hard to appreciate without spending a good deal of time hanging around climbers. Krakauer skillfully avoids getting too wrapped up in technical terms and esoteric knowledge; his narrative voice is well-developed. He has an elegant writing style that carries the reader like a raft floating along a deep river. A skilled wordsmith, he likes long and sometimes complex sentences yet he puts them together so skillfully you rarely lose the point. What makes the stories so accessible to climbers and non-climbers alike is Krakauers ability to place the human element at the front and center of each tale. MEET THE AUTHOR Anita Tsuchiya is el presidente y peon of Sabaku, Inc., a marketing services company that provides writing, editing, research, analysis and consulting for a diverse assortment of clientele. The loves of her life are split into two seasons: during the fall/winter she pursues a degree in Japanese language, and spends spring/summer joyfully immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of minor league baseball. A retired speed-freak and super-jock, her current life is moderately active. She grew up in the Bay Area of California, and her almae matres include San Leandro High and U.C. Davis. In fact, she remembers what San Jose looked like before Silicon Valley. Now happily settled in Salt Lake City, Utah, she shares her home with a pair of mixed-mutt bundles of canine goodness named Molly and Linus. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Krakauers strength as a writer lies in his ability to personalize the many characters who populate the sport of climbing. He gives us folks we can relate to on a human scale even if we dont quite understand their odd fixation with danger. Thanks to his skillful portraiture, it doesnt take long to start wondering: whatever happened to those outrageous Burgess twins? Has Richard Fisher come out of hiding from the gullies of Arizona? Did Adrian the Romanian finally make it to the top of Mt. McKinley, and more importantly, did he make it back down in one piece? The Burgess boys managed to survive their youthful indulgences. They even wrote a book about their adventures, climbing and otherwise. And theyve lost none of their cheekiness, as they point out in the acknowledgement, We especially thank those who held regular jobs so that civilization, as we know it, didnt fall apart while we went climbing.

A Life in Full Stride

Volume three in the ongoing series of the Journals of Richard L Proenneke is a selection of his writings during the years 1981 through 1985. Richard was near his prime during these years and he demonstrates it in word and deed. He wrote voluminously, his journals and his very large correspondence. He continued to be a prodigious hiker and paddled all over the Twin Lakes. He was always busy doing domestic chores at his cabin or out studying wildlife. Richard was a keen observer of wildlife and the natural world, but he was also an astute observer of human nature. It was during the first years of the decade of the 1980s that Proenneke's world began to change in many predictable ways. First, the continued success of his book brought a steady stream of fans to see and meet the 'Man.' In addition, in 1980 when Congress passed the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, Twin Lakes immediately became a prime destination spot for those seeking wilderness in newly minted Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. In short, Proenneke encountered many more people at his cabin and all around Twin Lakes than he had formerly experienced. The volume of flights by single engine planes to Twin Lakes also increased dramatically as the 1980s evolved. Volume Three of the Journals of Richard L Proenneke covers the first half of the momentous decade of the 1980s and Richard was very much involved in the local changes happening around Twin Lakes and Port Alsworth. Fortunately he documented his life very well and readers of this volume will see he was hardly a hermit living in a howling wilderness far from other people, but rather was a man who was fully engaged in the world around him, both in the natural world and with the people who lived in the area and visited the new national park. Proenneke's keen intellect and the profound knowledge he had of the natural world around Twin Lakes shines through in much of his writing. In many ways he was a perfectionist and he often expected people who wrote about him to get their facts straight as is so well demonstrated in his dust-up with the National Geographic Society writers and editors and with Anchorage based writer Ann Chanddonnet.
