*Tilman (on reaching the summit of Nanda Devi): "I believe we so far forgot ourselves as to shake hands on it."
* Tilman (after arduous and ultimately unsuccessful attempts on two peaks in Central Asia, and his arrest as a spy): "as I turned to go down into Chitrail, tired, lousy, and bereft of my diaries, I felt that the year had at any rate been rich in instruction."

The W. L. Gore Shipton/Tilman Grant is named for Tilman, and his climbing companion, Eric Shipton, but too few Americans are aware of Tilman's remarkable gift for writing. This economically-priced paperbound includes: Snow on the Equator, The Ascent of Nanda Devi, When Men and Mountains Meet, Everest 1938, Two Mountains and a River, China to Chitral and Nepal Himalaya.

H. W. Tilman's belief was "any worthwhile expedition can be planned on the back of an envelope." He wrote fifteen mountaineering and sailing books.
