Winter Words Festival: Catherine Moorehead
Mountain Guru – The Life of Doug Scott
Catherine Moorehead talks about the life of one of the greatest mountaineers in history, Doug Scott, whose extraordinary expeditions were undertaken over a period of four decades across seven continents.
Catherine talks about the man behind the mountaineer. She uncovers how Scott matured in thought and action as his formidable global reputation increased revealing him to be a clash of opposites, a man who took extraordinary risks yet who developed a deep interest in Buddhism and inspired widespread affection.
“Doug Scott was one of my closest friends. He had so many facets to his character – integrity, courage, great intelligence, and a strong sense of social responsibility, particularly in the way that he devoted his later life to support the people of up-country Nepal. This book is a remarkable tribute to an extraordinary climber and a great humanitarian.” Sir Chris Bonington
