Summary "Edinburgh. 1898. On the cusp of the modern age. Caleb George Cash mountaineer, geographer, antiquarian and teacher stands at the rocky summit of Arthur's Seat ... More than just a climbing book, this is the story of a survivor. [This] is an ... account in which Kellan intertwines his own personal struggle with HIV with the life story of ... Cash, beginning with the moment in 1898 when Caleb stood at the top of Arthur's Seat ... and made a list of twenty mountains visible from its summit, from Ben Lomond in the west to Lochnagar in the east. MacInnes stumbled over this long-forgotten list of hills, now dubbed the Arthurs, and in this book he sets a new hillwalking challenge-- climbing the Arthurs. Drawing on history, literature and personal experience, [MacInnes] tells the story of how Caleb's list came about and provides directions and route descriptions for those wishing to climb the mountains on the list"--Publisher's description.
