Detailed Product Description
New York, Thunder's Mouth, 2001. 301 pp, b/w photos. Used paperback. Fine.

This highly-regarded book won the Boardman Tasker prize for mountaineering literature in 1986 for being the best mountaineering work of the year. Stephen Venables' passion for cutting-edge mountaineering and off-the-map exploration has inspired adventures around the world - including an expedition to follow Ernest Shackleton's footsteps in Antarctica and another to climb Everest's fearsome Kangshung Face. Lost Mountains is his gripping account of life-and-death climbing and exploration in the remote and war-torn Kashmir region. This haunting and fragile mountain paradise - now a hotspot in the political struggles tearing apart Central Asia - gave Venables some of the most challenging and satisfying climbing of his life. 

Lost Mountains offers a searing reminder of what is at stake in the current struggle between nations, religions, and civilizations. Above all, it is a riveting story of adventure - told by a writer who defines the genre. It describes two expeditions in Kashmir, with numerous first ascents in the 6,000-7,000m range. Includes a two man, Alpine style ascent of Kishtwar-Shivling, then several joint British-Indian climbs. The area had been closed since the 1940's due to the Pakistani-Indian border disputes.
