About this book

Encounters with the Dragon contains photographs taken by Hone over more than 30 years, showing the mountains in all their moods and seasons, colours and light effects. And linking the photographs is Hone's text, telling stories of the mountains--how they came to be, their early history, tales of the pioneering climbers, near disasters and real tragedies and descriptions of how Hone came to capture his unique shots.

A fantastic collection of photos and tales, of landscape, nature & climbing incidents. From Bushman rock art, to scenes of climbers snowed-in, superlatives don't do this work justice. Buy one and taste the fresh mountain air!
