Stories from the Dirt

John Long

Author Signed Copy - Limited Quantity Available

Stories from the Dirt

Indiscretions of an Adventure Junkie

Riding tubes in Venezuela, BASE jumping in Europe. Climbing big walls in Yosemite.  Riding bulls in Texas.  These first-person stories from John Long, while vastly different in content, share an identifiable emotional texture, tone, and delivery, and fundamentally are of one piece.  This is storytelling at its best - nonfiction that reads like fiction.  In Stories from the Dirt, the action leaves you breathless, but it's the characters that really leave the lasting mark.  Like all stories worth a damn, this collection is all about the people.

 

JOHN LONG is an acclaimed rock climber and award-winning author of more than forty books, including several in Falcon's catalog.  He is one of the most prolific adventure writers out there and has authored magazine articles, screenplays, documentary films, and television and move scripts, as well as instructional rock climbing books.

"John Long is a genre unto himself. Few other writers can match his lean and unpredictable prose, and this latest collection proves that he remains a shrewd witness of today's cutting-edge adventure sports." - Andrew Bisharat, Climber, National Geographic writer, and editor of eveningsends.com

"John Long makes me sick - with envy, I mean. How a futuristic ultra-elite athlete became a truly accomplished writer of literary adventure stories - delivering complext emotions and characters alongside throat-grabbing thrills - is well, nothing short of miraculous." - Daniel Duane, Men's Journal contributing editor and author of Lighting out: A Golden Year in Yosemite

"No one spins literary adventure yarns like award-winning author John Long." - Duane Raleigh, publisher, Trail Runner, Ascent, and Rock & Ice magazines
