RUCKSACKS AT DAWN!!
The Escapades of a Lancashire Climber by Peter H
Peter Benson began
climbing in the 1950s when hemp waistlines and Tricounis were de rigeur.
In 1976 he joined the Rucksack Club and became a regular contributor to the
club’s annual journal. Many of the twenty-four stories in Rucksacks At
Dawn!! appeared first in a Rucksack Club journal.
For over seven decades Peter has
practised rockclimbing and other outdoor activities with a burning enthusiasm in
all weathers. The stories relate to days and, at times, weeks when he climbed
with friends and walked on mountains large and small in the UK and in Europe.
In his own words “the
adjectives you can never apply to mountaineering activities are dull and boring”,
and the same can
be said for this book!
