– Doug Scott, Up and About: The hard road to Everest
Vertebrate Publishing is pleased to share the news that Up and About – the first book of Doug Scott's two-part memoirs – is now back from the printers and available to buy. Printed and bound in the UK using quality materials, filled with colour photographs, and boasting the most remarkable tales from a lifetime in the high mountains, this isn't the kind of book that comes around too often. Phone off, kettle on, chair ready ...
In Up and About Scott tells his story from his birth in Nottingham during the darkest days of war to the summit of the world. Surviving the highest bivouac ever – without bottled oxygen or sleeping bags – Scott and his partner, Dougal Haston, returned home national heroes after becoming the first Britons confirmed to have successfully summitted Everest. Scott went on to become one of Britain’s greatest ever mountaineers, pioneering new climbs in the remotest corners of the globe.
