Detailed Product Description

Warsaw, 1995, Polish edition.287 pp, color and b/w photos. In Polish. Used paperback. Near Fine.

Kukuczka was the first Pole and the second person to climb all 14 8000 meter peaks. Polish climber Jerzy Kukuczka’s incredible achievement of climbing all fourteen 8000-metre peaks in just eight years; and apart from Lhotse, either by a new route or first winter ascent - and on a very tight budget! Shortly after completing his autobiography the author was killed on Lhotse (ten years after first climbing it) while attempting the unclimbed South Face. For some, his achievement was greater than Messner's,

My Vertical World is Jerzy Kukuczka's autobiography, written in his native Polish. Even translated, the book reads like some heroic Norse saga with Jerzy striding through it like a doomed Odin. A fascinating story, because it is a record of the personal memories of the Himalayan conqueror.
