Detailed Product Description

Washington D.C., National Geographic, 2002, 1st edition. 240 pp, many b/w photos. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

This is a heavy, large format book so extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.

This is the Washburn book we have all been waiting for, the complete story of his life and many adventures: Everest, McKinley, Amelia Earhart, Mt Kennedy, the Yukon and St Elias Range, more.

At the age of 20, Brad Washburn was a mountain-climbing wunderkind who had published four books about mountaineering. Most would consider this accomplishment enough for a lifetime, but for Washburn it was only a beginning. While a student at Harvard, he studied the pioneering field of aerial surveying and photography. Throughout his life, he would combine this skill with his passion for climbing to make aerial photographs and maps of the world's major landforms, from Mount McKinley in Alaska to Everest.

Washburn's improvements to aerial surveying technology resulted in maps of such accuracy and definition that they are still used by climbers today. Filled with exciting and entertaining anecdotes - including his prescient refusal of Amelia Earhart's offer to have him co-pilot her now famous last flight - and with Washburn's breathtaking photography and maps, On High is the first book to reveal, in his own words, the extraordinary life and work of Bradford Washburn.
