“Tim Carruthers has caught Harrer’s voice perfectly in this translation.”

Stephen Goodwin, The Independent

“I am delighted to write a note on your sterling translation efforts on my behalf - on the various essays in Mirrors in the Cliffs, the Dolomites project, but most notably for your work on The High Mountains of the Alps, translating Blodig's purple prose with excellent taste so that I was left with little to do except add the additional anecdotes from English sources. I am sure that book's great success on both sides of the Atlantic is in no small part due to your fine translation.”

Ken Wilson, Baton Wicks

“At last, a definitive work on Hermann Buhl, and Reinhold Messner translated well to boot! Tim Carruthers has produced a superb translation of Reinhold Messner and Horst Hofler’s much needed biography of one of my all time mountaineering heroes.”

Joe Simpson

“Your translation was very good--clean, graceful, faithful; in short, everything an editor could want…”

Julia Pastore

“Tim did a fine job with the translation, and in particular did a colossal amount of work tracking down the original English quotations Messner cites and making sure they were accurate.”

Tim Bent, St. Martin’s Press

“What is it that gives this book such explosive power? It is obvious: pictures we have not yet seen, texts which take our breath away; insights into a world which is for all but a few of us inaccessible.”
