Detailed Product Description

Canada, 1990, 1st edition. 239 pp, color & b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

The story of the 4 Canadian Everest expedition between 1982 and 1988. Includes the ascents by Pat Morrow, Laurie Skreslet and Sharon Wood. Also Roger Marshall's death on a solo attempt in 1987, and attempts by Barry Blanchard. Meet the members of the four Canadian expeditions on Mount Everest since 1982. Witness their commitment and dedication to their lifelong dreams. Bruce Patterson will introduce you to the people behind the familiar names in Canadian mountaineering.

Laurie Skreslet and Pat Morrow became the first Canadians to reach Everest's summit in 1982 on an expeditions that cost the lives of one Canadian and three Sherpas. Four years later the 1986 Everest Light Expedition saw Sharon Wood become the first North American woman to reach the mountain's summit. In 1987, Roger Marshall, who was kicked off the 1982 expedition and promoted himself as the 'bad boy' of Canadian mountaineering, died during a daring attempt to climb the mountain solo.
 
Barry Blanchard, who came close to the top in 1986, attempted Everest with just one other climber in 1988. As well as giving a first-hand impression of the dangers of climbing, CANADIANS ON EVEREST shows the human side of a very exotic sport. The mountaineers share their personal philosophies on climbing and on life.
