Detailed Product Description
Munich, 1937, reprint. 200 pp, 82 b/w photos, 3 maps. In German. Original beige cloth hardcover with brown lettering on spine and front cover and no dust jacket. Near Fine.

[English version, Neate B62: Kanchenjunga Challenge.] An account of two unsuccessful German expeditions to Kanchenjunga [Kangchenjunga] in 1929 and 1931. A third expedition in 1936 made the first ascent of Siniolchu, near Kangchenjunga.

The English version of this 1934 German book may have been translated and published to capture the newly aroused interest in reading about mountaineering, after Annapurna and Ascent of Everest, just as after Krakauer's Into Thin Air there was a flurry of mountaineering books about expeditions that may not have found an audience in less aroused times. There is also a chapter on climbing in the Alps of Bavaria, and in the Caucasus.
