Detailed Product Description

Seattle, Mountaineers, 1997, 1st US edition. 144 pp, 144 b/w and color photos. Original blue cloth large format hardcover with gold lettering on spine and front cover, dust jacket. Fine condition. The book appears unused, still really  in New condition.

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail and International Mail.

An up-to-date history of the highest mountain in the world. Includes ascents through 1996, many photos. This coffee-table book is full of gorgeous photos and contains a great deal of in-depth information, though obviously not including records from the past few years. It is at least as well-illustrated as Coburn's book and seems to be written for a more knowledgeable audience. Overall, it's ''the'' classic large format book on Everest.

The mighty, inaccessible peaks of Mt. Everest have always posed an irresistible challenge to those motivated to test their mettle against the harsh conditions. Packed with spectacular archival and specially commissioned photographs, this book examines the history of Everest mountaineering through thrilling journey reports.

The authors describe in detail the planning required for such a monumental climb and the technical means used in the Everest climbing adventures of modern mountaineering. The narrative recounts the various chapters in the mountaineering history of Everest, from the first reconnaissance in 1921 to the first victorious climb and the accomplishments-and failures-of recent decades. We meet the ambitious adventurers, revel in their triumphs, and experience the tragedies as well. Throughout the book the lively text and vivid photographs transport readers on a journey they will never forget.
