A New Year’s resolution led author David Vay to make a pact with a friend to hike up The White One.
Sitting regally and high above the French town of Chamonix, Mont Blanc bewitches and charms the people below it.
And David and his pal were determined to conquer it as they contemplated David’s 50th birthday. The book follows the duo as they tackle the mountain and the book will have you laughing as you follow their trek.
