Detailed Product Description

2001. 651 pp, many photos. This 'McKinley Omnibus' gives the complete text of three great books of early McKinley climbs, Cook's To The Top of the Continent, Browne's The Conquest of Mount McKinley and Stuck's The Ascent of Denali. The stories of the fake, the almost, and the actual first ascent of North America's highest peak are joined in one unabridged volume for the first time. Together, these three narratives - each a classic in its own right - comprise a unique history of the stakes, passions, and challenges involved in making Mount McKinley's first ascent. To the Top of the Continent: Dr. Frederick A. Cook describes his glorious and rapid climb to the top - a claim that has been widely discredited. The Conquest of Mount McKinley: Belmore Browne reveals the heartache of turning back a mere hundred yards from the summit. The Ascent of Denali: Hudson Stuck tells how his team of amateur climbers, but experienced Alaska travelers, made the first credited ascent. Thick Hardcover, New with dust jacket.
