Welcome to The Winger Bookstore. Whether you love planning your own adventures, or simply love reading about them, you’ve come to the right place. We carry books with Altitude.
We love travel, hiking, climbing, and exploring. In our guidebooks for rock climbing in Joshua Tree National Park, visiting Colorado’s dramatic Great Sand Dunes National Park, and traveling to the highest point in each of the 50 states, we share our discoveries and journeys.
If you’re fascinated by mountaineering tales, we invite you to read Two Shadows – the inspirational story of one man’s triumph over adversity. Charlie’s true story will take you on a journey from Chicago’s tenements and alleys through jails, reformatories, and the hell that was prison; from solitary confinement to the jungles of the Amazon, the heights of the Himalayas, the isolation of the desert Southwest, and many points in between. Now Available as an Audio Book!
New: Rockfall – Following a massive rock slide, three hikers are missing, presumed dead. An emotional novel that plumbs the depths of tragedy and celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit.
Faces is a suspenseful novel about the aftermath of a rock climbing accident.
Here are a few favorite books by other authors that we think you outdoorsy types might enjoy. To start off, we’re featuring new, AUTOGRAPHED books by our long-time friend, climbing partner, and fellow author Dave Cooper.
We love mountaineering and love books about mountaineering and similar themes. But how many beautiful books can one household really need? From time to time, we offer high-quality, gently used (often indistinguishable from new) books for sale. Check back, as this list will change.
