Detailed Product Description
New York, 1987, 1st Am edition. 256 pp, color illustrations. The Chris Bonington story; narratives of his many Everest and K2 expeditions. Also includes Vinson, the Ogre, many other climbs. Hardcover, DJ, Very Good-Near Fine.
 
SIGNED by Chris Bonington

The years 1970-1987 were been busy ones for Chris Bonington: four expeditions to Mt. Everest, to the Ogre and K2 in the Karakoram, Mt. Kongur in China and Mt. Vinson in Antarctica. Two of his friends perished on the 1982 Everest attempt, another on K2, while Bonington suffered broken ribs and pneumonia as he escorted a companion with broken legs down the Ogre in a storm.

He recounts these climbs in vivid detail: the search for a route on the southwest face of Everest; startling changes in the Nepalese villages (a three-story hotel with penthouse restaurant in Namche Bazar); the successful Norwegian expedition of 1985 when he finally reached the summit.

In between travels, Bonington writes about his adventures (Everest the Hard Way, etc.) at his home in the British Lake District. The Antarctic trip was a bit of a lark for him; he joined an amateur, Dick Bass (Seven Summits, who was attempting to climb the highest peak on every continent. For readers who enjoy action and mountaineering adventure.

From Library Journal

Reaching the summit of Mt. Everest is, for most climbers, the ultimate goal. Bonington, one of the world's best-known mountaineers and perhaps the most prolific, made it in 1985 at age 50 on his fourth attempt. In The Everest Years, his most recent volume of autobiography, he chronicles his Everest expeditions and tells the stories of Doug Scott's descent with two broken legs, and the ascent of Mt. Vinson in the Antarctic with Frank Wells and Dick Bass of Seven Summits ' fame. Written in an engaging, storytelling style, this profusely illustrated book is entertaining, top-notch mountaineering literature.
