Of the 30 text pages, 26 pages are in Slovak; one article is translated: 'Czechoslovak Expeditions to Nanga Parbat in 1969 and 1971,' a few pages are in Russian, German and English. [Yakushi P144.] The book is about the Tatra Expedition Himalayas 1969 and the Second Czechoslovak Expedition to Nanga Parbat, 1971, written by Puskas, who was a member of both expeditions.

Nanga Parbat was summited by two team members on July 10, 1971, and two lower summits were attained by other team members. This was the fourth ascent of Nanga Parbat, only a year after Messner's climb with his brother Gunther.  In 1969 and 1971 some members of each team drove from Czechoslovakia to Pakistan.

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