Join Colin Midson in conversation with Ed Caesar about The Moth and the Mountain, a book that tells the untold story of Britain’s most mysterious mountaineering legend, Maurice Wilson, and his heroic attempt to climb Everest alone. Wilson was a man written out of the history books – dismissed as an eccentric and a charlatan by many, but held in the highest regard by renowned mountaineers. In The Moth and the Mountain his story becomes an inspirational and heartbreaking story about hope, heroism, and the power of the human spirit in the face of adversity. The Sunday Times called it “A small classic of the biographer’s art”.
