To Heaven’s Heights

An Anthology of Skiing in Literature

An eclectic collection of ski stories from world-famous authors.

Spanning one thousand years and with contributions from more than one hundred authors, this anthology celebrates every aspect of skiing. Edited by a leading ski authority, it features writings from well-known authors including Ernest Hemingway, A. A. Milne, Sylvia Plath, Bill Bryson, and many more. The authors reflect on skiing as a means of transport, communication, hunting, exploration, and, more recently, as an Olympic sport and a leisure activity enjoyed by millions around the globe. With writings on everything from accidents and avalanches to magic and mystery, these stories will appeal to skiers and armchair athletes alike.

Proceeds from the book will go to Snow Camp, a national snowsports charity in the United Kingdom that aims to give inner-city children the opportunity to experience the mountains. www.snow-camp.org.uk
