Legless but Smiling - an autobiography
In this intriguing autobiography, Norman Croucher looks back at his life in the mountains.
Despite walking on two below knee artificial legs, it became Norman's ambition to climb any one of the world's fourteen mountains which exceed 8000 metres. His odyssey was to demonstrate great powers of judgement and persistence as he overcame considerable pain, rejection, extremes of exhaustion and even metal fatigue. Norman captures the fun as well as the hardship.
