Detailed Product Description

Philadelphia, 1945, 1st edition. 479 pp. Nice hardcover with slightly chipped but nice (rare) dust jacket. Near Fine condition.

A fictional account of climbing a big mountain in the Alps. The book was made into a feature movie years ago, starring Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges. Possibly the best selling mountaineering novel of all time. 

"The White Tower, a Matterhorn-like mountain in the Swiss Alps, has never been climbed. Carla Alten's father, a famous mountaineer, died in a long-ago attempt. Now, Carla, determined to fulfill her father's dream, has assembled an unusual climbing party to tackle the nearly-impossible ascent."

Wikipedia: James Ramsey Ullman (August 21, 1907 July 5, 1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York City. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering and geography.
