It has been an amazing year, thanks to a bunch of Polish climbers! I’ve been on the road for most of 2012 promoting my book Freedom Climbers: Canada, the U.S., England, three times to Poland, and in two weeks – India. The trip to India isn’t just book promotion, but also to accept the Himalayan Club’s Kekoo Naoroji Award for mountaineering literature. This will be the fourth award for the book: Banff mountain Book Festival Grand Prize, Boardman Tasker Prize and American Alpine Club literature award. The book has now been published in Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Poland and Italy. German, French and Spanish editions will be out later this year. As I said – a big year. A huge thank you to everyone who has made it so special, particularly the Polish climbers whose stories I was honored to tell.
