Description

* Founder of the Washington Trails Association, Spring is a respected and outspoken trails advocate
* Spring played a key role in the early days of Pacific Northwest conservation, The Mountaineers club, and REI
* Successful photographer and author of more than 60 works

For Ira Spring, adventuring and photography was always inextricably intertwined. From early paddling trips with his family and his first camera (at age 12), through almost 70 years of climbing and hiking, dozens of books, and a successful career as a photographer, Spring was a role model for generations of climbers and conservationists. Heavily illustrated with his masterful photographs, this autobiography follows Spring, his camera, his trusty ice axe, and his trademark peanut butter sandwiches on adventures throughout the world.
