Detailed Product Description

New York, 2001, 1st edition (only edition). 240 pp, many color photos.  Original blue cloth hardcover; dust jacket. No remainder mark. New condition. 

Remembered for his role on Everest in May 1996, Boukreev left diaries of his many fast and daring climbs on McKinley, K2, Makalu, Manaslu, and Everest. He climbed Everest 4 times. This book will appeal to all those who admired the great climber, or anyone fascinated by the 8000 meter peaks. During his lifetime, Anatoli Boukreev climbed 11 of the world's 14 8,000-meter peaks, and would have climbed them all had he lived. He would have been perhaps the 7th or 8th person to climb them all.

He set numerous speed records on solo ascents, and on group missions rescued countless climbers from the 'death zone.' Above the Clouds, a compilation of Boukreev's journal entries, unveils the rich interior life of the controversial Russian/Kazakh legend.
