Detailed Product Description
2002, 1st US ed. 281 pp, photos. Remainder mark. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine.

A history of the world's first great climbers and eccentrics, the Duke of Abruzzi, Fritz Wiessner, Charlie Houston, Hermann Buhl, Edward Whymper, Albert Smith, Frederick Cook and Hudson Stuck, plus others. 

Traversing a century of climbing that began with the Victorian enthusiasts and ended with the conquest of the great Himalayan peaks, Mick Conefrey and Tim Jordan take us back to a not-so-distant world to tell the stories of the extraordinary men who were the first to climb the world's best-known mountains - the Matterhorn, McKinley, Everest, and K2. 

Their quests provide welcome historical context and very modern thrills for readers of adventure narratives. Accompanied by unique archival materials, detailed maps, and photographs, Mountain Men invites us to follow in the footsteps of these fearless explorers, and tells us their stories with all the romance and stupidity, bravado and suffering, courage and miscalculation, intact.
