Detailed Product Description

San Francisco, 1993, 1st edition. 102 pp, color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition. 

A memoir of Hugh Swift, who wrote two of the premier Himalayan trekking guidebooks and was universally regarded as one of the great Himalayan travelers of our time. Before his death in 1991, he covered an estimated 15,000 miles on foot. This book is illustrated with photographs culled from Swift's collection. The Traveler captures the vast allure of the Himalayas - its rich culture and gentle people and its high, hard-edged terrain - and reveals the profound changes that Western tourism and foreign aid have brought to these once remote regions.
