Detailed Product Description
Paris, 1952, 1st edition. 16 pp text, 72 color and b/w photos, maps. Text in French. Tall softcover, worn and repaired wrappers. Very Good.

[Perret 2548; Yakushi L34.] The account of the third French expedition (in 1951) of eight mountaineers intending to climb and traverse the world's 23rd highest mountain, Nanda Devi in the Himalayas. The result is a very moving description of what must surely have been one of the most heroic Himalayan ventures in history. This pictorial book supplements the main story, which was translated into English in 1956 as 'To Kiss High Heaven.' Dedicated to Roger Duplat and Gilbert Vignes, who disappeared on Nanda Devi on June 29, 1951.
 
This was the first attempt to traverse the ridge between the main summit and Nanda Devi East. It resulted in the death of two members of the expedition. Team leader Roger Duplat and Gilbert Vignes disappeared on the ridge somewhere below the main summit.  Tenzing Norgay was in a support team on this expedition; he and Louis Dubost climbed Nanda Devi East to look for the missing pair. Some years later Tenzing was asked what was the most difficult climb he ever did, expecting him to say Mount Everest; he surprised his interlocutors by saying Nanda Devi East.
