Detailed Product Description
London, Collins, 1955, 1st UK edition. 192 pp, 22 b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine.

This copy SIGNED by Bob Bates, Charles Houston, Robert Craig, Pete Schoening and Dee Molenaar. All the signatures are on the title page. There is no other writing in the book, but there is a bookplate from a previous owner inside the front cover and one copy has a torn end paper and a torn title page that has been repaired.

The story of the 1953 K2 attempt by a strong American group. Pete Schoening's famous belay saved the entire expedition from death.
 
This is the account of one of the greatest and now legendary episodes in the history of high altitude mountaineering, the 1953 K2 expedition. High on the world's second highest mountain, above the steepest & most treacherous sections of the climb, a team member became gravely ill. Chances were that he would die. But the team (all eight were together) refused to abandon their buddy, and, with considerable peril to their own safety, committed to the impossible task of dragging, lowering, and carrying their stricken comrade back down the mountain. There was an accident. All should have died. This is a must read for those who like adventure and admire selfless teamwork.
