The Norwegian Mountain Literature Award 2012
My book Bergtatt ('In High Places') received the Norwegian Mountain Literature Award 2012 last weekend! The award to handed to me by the legendary Nils Faarlund during an event at the Litteraturhuset in Oslo, and included 10.000 NOK which I handed over to Gerda M. Pauler and the work that Autism Care Nepal do. Among the audience were famous climbers like Doug Scott and Aslak Aastorp.
Previous years' awards were given to: Knut B Lykken «Turglede med konger og kunstnere», Halvor Hagen «Toppturer i Romsdalen», Terje Kleiven «Dei gav oss ein arv», and «Troll Wall. The untold story of the British first ascent of Europe’s tallest Rock Face». Hurrungane Turlag and Mountain People are responsible for the award.
