Denali Ranger, by Lew Freedman
Roger Robinson has been Denali mountaineering for over forty years and has worked as a ranger for most of this time. Robinson has climbed Denali, at 20,310 feet, numerous times, leading patrols on the mountain, organizing clean climb efforts on the mountain, meeting the best climbers in the world, and leading rescues that saved lives. Year after year, Robinson has studied the mountain and its climbers, its people, and he has experienced a series of adventures on one of the best-known and formidable mountains in the world, a mountain that for many is the symbol of Alaska, the 49th state. Denali Ranger (240 pages) is packed full of enough advice and adventure to give you chills.
“For over three decades and counting, Roger Robinson has been talking trash on Denali. As if it hasn’t been enough to educate and rescue untold numbers of climbers, he is also saving North America’s highest mountain. His life story is an inspiration.”
