Valley of Giants: Stories from Women at the Heart of Yosemite Climbing by Lauren DeLaunay Miller, Lauren DeLaunay Miller


Learned about this book from my *new* AAC membership magazine. Got it for a friend, but wanted to read it first. Lots of very cool stories. Flagged some of my favorites afterwards, but it was tough because many of them sort of blended together. Still very neat to read through other perspectives, epics, achievements, friendships, and resiliency. Loved the early stories that had an old-timey feel, but still involved much badassery and stoke! Will likely get a couple more copies for other climber friends! (As with many climbing-centric books, knowing some terminology and having visited Yosemite will likely enhance your reading experience)
