One of my favs. So was Chuck.


Me, too. I remember checking out the AAJ from the Doe Library and reading this article with my roommates. We lost a great writer and a great man.

Pratt was the spiritual leader of the end of the 60's.
This tale set the standard of what it took to be a Yosemite "hardman."

It's been a goodly while since I last read this but it hasn't lost its
power. A beautiful piece of writing. Those were hard men with soul.

Here is another of his stellar pieces, View from Dead Horse Point and comments from a 2005 supertopo thread:
