  • Autobiography of pivotal Scottish mountaineer and author Bill Murray, posthumously drawn together with painstaking thoroughness by Ken Wilson. Beautifully written.

    Murray describes his rock and ice climbing in Scotland in the 1930s - an inspiring period of discovery that is ruthlessly cut short by war. Commissioned into the Highland Light Infantry he was soon in action in the Western Desert in a last ditch defence to slow the advance of Rommel's tanks. After capture, there followed a long period of incarceration during which he wrote Mountaineering in Scotland.

    In the post-war years, after a brief investigation of monastic life, he returned to climbing in time to enjoy the wonderfully harsh winter of 1946-47. A further setback took place in his 1949 alpine season with a serious accident in the Dauphini©e in company with Michael Ward and the first BMC Secretary, John Barford, who died as a result. The years 1950-53 saw him involved in Himalayan travel with trips to the Garhwal, the Everest region and a traverse of the Api Range.

    Thereafter writing, home mountaineering, and marriage predominated during which he played a crucial role in the Scottish environmental struggle against the predations of the Forestry and Hydro Electric industries.
