Detailed Product Description

USA, 1997, 1st edition. 160 pp, color photos. This was the first book issued on the tragic events on Everest on May 8, 1996, later described in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air.

Rob Hall's death on Everest in 1996 overshadowed his accomplishments and Gary Ball's, who guided 40 persons to Everest's summit. A superb book on Everest and the Seven Summits. Both the pictures and text of this book are authentic and tell the story of typical New Zealand adventurers that became famous and died in the mountains. The pictures are by Hall, Ball, and friends.
 
You see what you have only read about in books on Everest climbs, from the dawns to the garbage. The text puts the Himalayan climbing tragedies in context of the lives of the heros and their friends. Details come from journals, letters, interviews, and memories. The author knew Hall & Ball well. This is a great tribute, compelling read, and looks good on a coffee table too. Large hardcover with dust jacket. New condition (In stock since 1997!)

This is a large format book and we will request extra postage for priority mail or international mail.
