My parents love auction houses and a bargain, sometimes we joke and call the stuff they come back with junk (which it is).
But this Christmas I received a book which my mother had found discarded in a box of stuff at a sale. She won it for a mighty 50p, this would be my Christmas present.
This well cared for book, must have belong to someone who loved the mountain! It’s was full of newspapers clipping from 1954 to 2006.
The book is also signed by the author and expedition leader John Hunt. I thought I’d share some of it with you
