Detailed Product Description
A VERY NICE COPY OF THIS CLASSIC MAGAZINE:
 
Articles in this magazine are as follows
 
A SPECIAL ISSUE ON MOUT EVEREST AND THE HIMALAYA.
Mapping Mount Everest. Space-age technology provides a brilliant new look at the central Himalaya in a double map supplement, the most accurate portrait of the Everest region ever produced. Project leader Bradford Washburn relates its history.

Honey Hunters of Nepal. High in Himalayan foothills, fearless Gurang men risk their lives to harvest the massive nests of the world’s largest honeybee. Text and photographs by Eric Valli and Diane Summers.

Long Journey of the Brahmaputra. From Tibet’s lofty passes through India to the floodplains of Bangladesh Jere Van Dyk follow the storied river whose course was a mystery for centuries. Raghubir Singh and Galen Rowell photograph the scenic region shared by Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims.
Exploring Cradle Earth. The splendor of Mount Everest, captured by William Thompson in unique aerial photographs, epitomizes the human urge to view the unknown.

The Mighty Himalaya: A Fragile Heritage. Geographer Barry C. Bishop, who scaled Mount Everest a quarter of a century ago, describes today’s battle between conservationists and commercial interests in Asia’s loftiest mountain system.

Heavy Hands on the Land. The cursh of tourists in the Himalayan range and the needs of the local Tibetan and Nepalese populations take a serious toll, writes Larry Kohl. Photographs by William Thompson and Galen Rowell.
 
OTHER ARTICLES:

Down the Cayman Wall. By submersible, shark expert Eugenie Clark explores a kaleidoscope of marine organisms living along a 3,200-foot underwater escarpment off Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean.

Mission to Mars.  A U.S.-Soviet manned voyage could answer age-old riddles about Earth’s neighbor planet. Former astronaut Michael Collins describes a flight scenario for the year 2004, with photographs by Roger H. Ressmeyer and artwork by Pierre Mion and Roy Andersen.
 
This issue included the now classic map of Mount Everest, by Brad Washburn. We will supply one of the original maps as far as possible, but as of 2011 we have 10 issues and only 3 maps. (We used to sell the maps before it became commercially available.)
