You are going to enjoy this: a life, of adventure - surviving the war years on the far side of the world, sailing, climbing, ski mountaineering, in many different parts of the world. It is inspiring that a Reverend should stick his neck out in this way - battling Atlantic storms, losing a mast in Antarctica, sailing continually in the Arctic, making the first ascents of mountains, skiing across remote regions, climbing with world class climbers, and sailing through the North West Passage. As a Commando, Bob is clearly made of the right stuff! -- Bear Grylls
His expeditions have made over sixty first ascents of mountains and rock faces...all previously unclimbed, and he has been called 'the modern Tilman'. All this as well as being, and often in conjunction with being, a Reverend. It's an interesting and varied life; I commend it to you. -- Sir Chris Bonington * Foreword *
This is the uniquely interesting and colourful life of a Anglican clergyman turned adventurer. A wonderful true tale of adventure with a wide variety of people of all ages, in different parts of the world and over many years, stretching from the days of the British Empire to the present. A truly interesting book, which I definitely recommend. -- Sir Ranulph Fiennes * Foreword *
