About the Book
For nearly 80 years, Yvon Chouinard has pursued with equal fervor sport adventures, business excellence, and environmental activism. Since 1950, he has captured the lessons and revelations he’s learned in articles and books, personal letters and poetry, introductions and eulogies. In this fascinating inside look, Chouinard himself has selected his favourites from years of reflection, all accompanied by illustrative photos, many never published before. The result is more of Chouinard’s iconoclastic and provocative thinking, his skilled storytelling and sense of humour, and a picture of the evolution of his thoughts and philosophies. With articles on sport, from falconry to fishing and climbing to surfing, with musings on the purpose of business and the importance of environmental activism, Some Stories is an eclectic portrait of a unique life lived well.
