Detailed Product Description
New York, 1963, 1st US edition or 1964 2nd printing. 202 pp, 18 b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. 

Written by member of 1953 Mt Everest expedition. 'Each of us seems to be born with certain faculties which will help us survive in certain situations. Sometimes these are obvious qualities: stubbornness in everyday life, tenacity, the fighting spirit and so on. Often, however, they lie submerged, waiting to be dug from the depths by the particular situation. To some extent, as we shall see, and in certain situations, a certain type of body is useful: the big, burly, muscular person is less apt to survive than the lithe, wiry one.' Great true cases of men and women who have survived extreme physical ordeals.
