It is primarily a photo essay of the Japanese mountaineering expeditions to Manaslu from reconnaissance in 1952 through the first ascent in 1956.

This is one of the most desirable books on Manaslu and on a first ascent of an 8000-meter peak.

With a summit at 8163 meters, Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain on earth. It is located in the Nepal Himalaya in the Gandaki Section of the Gurkha Himal. The name means mountain of the spirit. One of the first westerners to explore it was H.W. Tilman in 1950, but his expedition did little more than photograph the mountain since they weren't prepared to climb such a big, remote peak. In 1952 the Japanese made a reconnaissance of the mountain, and then sent big expeditions until finally making the first ascent in 1956.
