The Ascent of The Matterhorn by Edward Wymper is today’s Free eBook Of The Day.
Originally published in 1880, this is an adventurer’s tale of climbing the Alps. Here is an excerpt from the book: “At Zermatt I wandered in many directions, but the weather was bad, and my work was much retarded. One day, after spending a long time in attempts to sketch near the Hörnli, and in futile endeavours to seize the forms of the peaks as they for a few seconds peered out from above the dense banks of woolly clouds, I determined not to return to Zermatt by the usual path, and to cross the Gorner glacier to the Riffel hotel.”
