Detailed Product Description
Italy, 2014, 1st edition. 196 pp, photos. In Italian. 1954-2014: 60th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST CLIMB TO K2. K2 is the Duke of Abruzzi, to Houston, to Desio, Bonatti, of Diemberger, Viesturs ... Each climb is a story in itself, an adventure unlike any other.

In this book, however, Mirella Tenderini tells the entire story of the mountain; she is the protagonist and the author of the fate of hundreds of men who for centuries have admired, idolized, climb, explored, or even won, conquered. In the latter sense is the mountain of K2 and the Italian expedition led by Desio in 1954 is a watershed in the history of K2 and mountaineering expeditions. The way it was conducted and the controversy it has sparked are still incandescent matter that still has many dark sides and that the author manages to focus retracing all the stages that led to the achievement of the summit.

A story of men, rivalry, generosity and contrasts, of nationalism and individualism. A sporting history, politics, and above all the history of the 8000m peaks of the world. New hardcover with New Dust Jacket.
