Detailed Product Description

Seattle, 1991, 1st edition. 136 b/w, 24 color photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

SIGNED by Reinhold Messner

Messner's 1800 mile, 92 day crossing of Antarctica by skis in 1990. Battling -40 c temperatures and 100 mph winds, Messner and Arved Fuchs wrote their way into Antarctic history. 

Undertaking what was once called the last possible land journey on earth, Arved Fuchs and Reinhold Messner completed a dramatic traverse of the Antarctic continent in February 1990, after a 92-day, 2800-kilometer trek on foot. Through temperatures of minus 40 degrees Celsius, and blizzards with winds measuring up to 150 kilometers per hour, they journeyed across the Thiel mountains to the South Pole, and from there to McMurdo Sound on the Ross Sea.

Reinhold Messner did it not as a conquest in the classic, geographical sense. He had simply looked for an adventure as a man who had known many and he had found it. In the white infinity of that great wilderness he found something else another perception of time and space than he had found on the great mountains that had previously been his goal.

On the long march across the ice continent he sensed that 'Heaven' and 'Hell' are not human inventions but rather that they are inseparable halves in the nature of the world, which man should not seek to separate from one another. A remarkable story of hardship, courage, and determination, this is Messner's account of yet another incredible adventure in a life that has already known so many.
