About the Book
Mountain Safety Research of Seattle began in the late 1960s and soon became one of the most controversial outdoor gear companies of its time, under the hard-bitten leadership of its founder Larry Penberthy. He ruffled many feathers, but in the end, his safer designs for ice axes won the day, and his new-fangled stove designs forever changed things. MSR is still a thriving company today, under the umbrella of Cascade Designs, Inc. of Seattle.

My FIVE Blurb books combine many of my passions. The lure of beautiful, innovative outdoor gear drove me into the history of the industry and its colorful founders. The fun was in the researching, writing, photographing, and tracking down mysteries. This is the kind of work I enjoy the most. www.Historyofgear.com Please visit my www.Oregonphotos.com website, where you can simply click the "About Us" button to access a complete 2 page Biography of me!
