Detailed Product Description

New York, Norton, 1982, true 1st edition. 350 pp, photos. Ex Lib hardcover with no dust jacket. Book has the usual library marks and stamps. Very Good.

A popular history of the Eiger.

From an Amazon Review:

This is a consistently interesting history of climbing on the Eiger's North Wall from the late 19th century to the late '70s. I'm not sure I've read a better narrative on mountain climbing, and I can't imagine a better book about the Eiger. Roth's account is well written, fair minded, vivid, sometimes harrowing, and always informative. Roth provides us poor armchair alpinists with the best picture of the famous mountain that we can hope for. The photos are good, especially the ones that indicate the various routes, landmarks, and places where the unfortunates died. I had a hard time putting this book down. This is an absolute must for anyone interested in mountains and or mountaineering,
