Ascent of Rum Doodle - Bowman


Product Overview

Ascent of Rum Doodle - Bowman (Vintage, 2010)

This book includes an introduction by Bill Bryson. An outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40,000-and-a-half-foot peak, The Ascent of Rum Doodle "has been a cult favourite since its publication in 1956. Led by the reliably under-insightful Binder a team of seven British men including Dr Prone (constantly ill); Jungle the route finder (constantly lost); Constant the diplomat (constantly arguing) and 3000 Yogistani porters set out to conquer the highest peak in the Himalayas."
