Award-winning mountain author Bernadette McDonald chronicles one of the greatest alpinists of all time, Voytek Kurtyka, in Art of Freedom. This Polish climber’s visionary approach has resulted in many renowned ascents, including what has been dubbed as the “climb of the century”, an unrepeated alpine-style ascent of the Shining Wall on the West Face of Gasherbrum IV.
The book was recently announced as the Mountain Literature award winner in the 2017 Banff Mountain Book Competition. The award will be presented on Thursday November 2nd as part of the Into Twin Galaxies, Book Awards – and Films event.
