Detailed Product Description

Seattle, 1977. 224 pp, b/w photos, maps. This was the best paperback edition. Used paperback. Near Fine.

Photos by Bradford Washburn. There was a great rush to make the first ascent of America's highest peak. After several previous attempts, this describes the actual first ascent of McKinley. Walter Harper of the Stuck party in 1913 was the actual first person in the party to reach the summit, and his diary is included in this edition. 

 
The Ascent of Denali is a narrative of the 1913 expedition of the first ascent of Mount McKinley (aka Denali). Hudson Stuck and his three companions, Walter Harper, Harry Karstens, and Robert Tatum overcame great challenges from extreme cold to explosive storms during their climb. The Katmai explosion and earthquake in 1912 had left their route up the Northeast ridge a jumble of house-sized blocks of ice. Finally on June 7, 1913, the young Athabascan Walter Harper was the first person to set foot on the rooftop of North America. Stuck tells a compelling story complete with observations of the natural world through careful prose.
