The only Genuine Jones - a good read.

No 9 – The only Genuine Jones – a good read.

A challenge for honour turns into a fight for survival at 12,000 feet.

Beneath the polite veneer of Victorian society, a small group of eccentric men and women live double lives as mountaineers. The maverick rock climber O.G. Jones and a young Aleister Crowley are rivals in this dangerous new world. Both are brilliant and ambitious, but their concept of honour could not be more different.

Together their journey takes them from the Highlands of Scotland to the most lethal mountain wall in the Alps, where Jones is confronted with a terrible choice: risk death and dishonour, or allow Crowley to triumph and destroy everything he believes in.

Adventure and deception, the Victorian spirit of progress, and the savage beauty of the wild combine to make this a tale of the mountains like no other.

And finally –

No 10 –

Look after those you love and care about – cost nothing means a lot more than a expensive present!

Thanks for all the offers of a Christmas  meal but I am fine – got the soup made, vension out and the pudding nearly done.

Love to you all!
