Detailed Product Description
UK, 2011. 288 pp, color and b/w photos. New large format softcover.

Extra postage required for Priority Mail or International Mail.

Come face to face with those who have spent their lives at altitude: explorers and mapmakers, pioneering travelers and film-makers, ice climbers and extreme skiers, environmentalists and anthropologists, geologists and glaciologists, and the peoples of the mountains themselves.
 
The weathered faces of black-and-white portraiture from the world's leading collections are displayed alongside modern color photographs by a group of leading adventure photographers such as Ace Kvale and Martin Hartley.
 
Among those featured are Sir George Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory, Fritz Wiessner, Kurt Diemberger, Bill Briggs, Stein Eriksen, Reinhold Messner, Maurice Herzog, Richard Bass, Joe Simpson, Alain Robert, Ingemar Stenmark, Deborah Comagnoni and Terje Haakonsen.
 
Featuring: • Doug Scott • Marko Prezelj • Reinhold Messner • Sir Edmund Hillary • Steph Davis • Tom Hornbeim • Galen Rowell • Conrad Kain • Kurt Diemberger • Edward Whymper • Eric Shipton • George Mallory • Alex Lowe • Tenzing Norgay • Catherine Destivelle • Ricardo Cassin • Peter Habeler • Stephan Siegrist • Kenton Cool • Yvon Chouinard • Lynn Hill • Pat Morrow • Denis Urubko • Candide Thovex • Maurice Herzog • Apa Sherpa • Ueli Steck • Steve House, and many more…
