Detailed Product Description

Nebraska or Seattle, 1977 or 1989. 188 pp, b/w photos. Used paperback. Very Good to Near Fine condition.

There was a great rush to make the first ascent of America's highest peak. After several previous attempts, this describes the actual first ascent of McKinley. There has not been a good paperback edition of this book for a decade. 

The Ascent of Denali A Narrative of the First Complete Ascent of the Highest Peak in North America (Full Title)

Narrative of the 1913 expedition of the first ascent of Mount McKinley (aka Denali). Hudson Stuck and his three companions overcame great challenges from extreme cold to explosive storms during their climb. The Katmai explosion and earthquake in 1912 had left their route up the Northeast ridge a jumble of house-sized blocks of ice. Finally on June 7, 1913, the young Athabascan Walter Harper was the first person to set foot on the rooftop of North America. Stuck tells a compelling story complete with observations of the natural world through careful prose.
