/ "Fiva" wins Banff Mountain Literature award at Banff
Many congratulations to Gordon.
The grand prize was won by "Fire Season" by Philip Connors.
Brilliant news for Gordon!
This is awesome news and highly deserved. Well done Gordon!
Good stuff Gordon! A most worthy winner so happy days! :-)
Yup, congratulations gordon
Brilliant. I was wondering how it had done.
Just finished the copy I received for my birthday. It's a great read - a real page tuner that make you feel as though you're right there in the middle of it.
congratulations gordon - well deserved - you and Freida must be very proud...
Well deserved too. Congratulations Gordon!
I'm actually wondering whether Gordon made it to the awards announcement reception because the timing appears to have coincided with the single malt whisky tasting event.....
I wasn't at the whisky tasting, Nick, because the Book Prize event had its own reception, and let me assure you the drinks flowed ... We ended up in the Irish Pub in Banff town centre with Simon Yates, who was keeping the flag flying for Britain when it came to knocking back the pints :)
Having a really great time. As I said in my acceptance speech, 'this is one of the best days in my professional life for 18 years ... since I was last here and won the Best Book of Mountain Image prize for "The Cuillin".' Actually, this feels so much bigger an award to me.
Thanks to everyone else of this thread for their congratulations.
Well done! Great news. Who says the good guys don't win?
I've asked my partner for this book for Christmas, so this news isn't helping me keep expectations down...
Well done! That should help sales a bit ;-)
Excellent! I must read it.
I thought this was a very beautiful book.
Congratulations to Gordon!
Read it on hols - should've put my tenner on it then. An unusual, common-touch story that's a well-deserved winner. Congratulations Gordon
