Detailed Product Description
New York, 1978, 1st edition or 2nd printing. 170 pp, color and b/w photos. Orange cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be chipped. Book is fine. Near Fine to Fine. 

Miura was the first to attempt to ski from Everest, considered crazy at the time, now routine. 

Yuichiro Miura is a Japanese alpinist who in 2003, at age 70, became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. This record was later broken. However, on May 26, 2008, Miura once again successfully summited Mt Everest at the age of 75. On May 23, 2013 Miura again became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest at the age of 80.

This achievement is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He also became the first person to ski on Mount Everest on May 6, 1970. He descended nearly 4,200 vertical feet from the South Col (elevation over 8,000 m (26,000 ft)). This feat was documented in 1975, in the film The Man Who Skied Down Everest. The film won the Academy Award for best documentary, the first sports film to do so.

Keizo Miura, Japanese skier, was his father. Gouta Miura, freestyle skier and alpinist, is one of his sons.
