  • Review of Some Stories

    "Chouinard's storytelling shines, providing an intimate look at a life 'focused neither on the past or future, but on the present.'" Climbing magazine
  • Review of Some Stories

    "Yvon Chouinard says he’s more of a storyteller than a writer, but Some Stories, Chouinard’s brick of a beautiful coffee-table book about his life at Patagonia, and in Patagonia, and in all the other places the company founder and climbing iconoclast has made his mark, shows that his writing chops hold up. It’s filled with tales of his early days in Yosemite and kicking around South America with his friend Doug Tompkins, the late conservationist and founder of the North Face, and the scrapes he got into along the way." --Outside
  • Review of Some Stories

    "...the thoughts and the example set by Chouinard may also upset the equilibrium of any reader who has become stuck in their work or in how they spend their days. It's an essential read and a worthy successor to Chouinard’s previous work, the well-known Let My People Go Surfing: The Education of a Reluctant Businessman." -- Forbes.com

  • 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 favorites 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 humor, 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.
