Product Description

«THE EVEREST HAS BECOME A METAPHOR OF THE WORLD. I'M INTERESTED WHEN IT WAS AN ALTERNATIVE »

After seven years working as a mountain guide in Nepal, David Abós returns to the family town of Asomo, in the Pyrenees, where he begins a new life at the in front of a small mountain refuge. During his years in Asia, David has become a first-rate climber, thus fulfilling his most pressing youthful dreams. However, dark reasons seem to push him now to reject any sporting ambition, and take refuge like a hermit.

Throughout history, the causes that have caused this transformation, among which are personal tears but also the evidence that mountaineering, unlike what David held in his early years naive, it is not an area unrelated to the growing commodification of life and the world. The return home, to a possible kind and retired life, far from being a solution to their disenchantment, supposes the prolongation of conflicts equivalent to those left behind, whose unexpected festering will push David to make risky decisions.

A mountain and adventure book, also a reflection on the functions that both mountaineering and literature can play in our world, perhaps far removed to always of any notion of refuge. And a passionate song to the mountains, the Pyrenees and childhood dreams that remain forever in the soul.
