A Biography of Len York who survived a crippling fall from the Matterhorn in 1972.

Born in the Clent Hills, this is the remarkable story of Len York. On the 23rd July 1972 whilst climbing the Matterhorn, he fell 150ft, sustaining terrible injuries. Although now paraplegic the book recounts his amazing recovery which has led him to complete many breathtaking feats.

'A Long Way From Clent is not a book about climbing but the story of the fortitude and determination of a very special person'.

Sir Chris Bonington CBE

'Beautifully illustrated... A Long Way From Clent cannot fail to inspire the reader. Moving, affectionate and honest, this book will appeal to armchair mountaineers and all those who have stood upon summits at daybreak and glimpsed the absolute.'
