Detailed Product Description
UK, 2020, 1st UK edition. 266 pp, color and b/w photos. While you wouldnt expect climbing an 8000-meter peak in winter to be a popular activity, there have been 178 expeditions (as of 2019) to the Himalaya and Karakoram during the cruelest season to do just that. Polish alpinist, Voytek Kurtyka, termed the practice the "art of suffering." Hardcover with dust jacket. New.

This is the British edition. The USA and Canadian editions are paperback only. We brought these in for people who prefer hardcover books to paperbacks.

The stories here range from the French climber Elisabeth Revols solo winter attempt of Makalu, to American Cory Richards and his dramatic effort on Gasherbrum II with famed Italian alpinist Simone Moro and Kazakh hard man Denis Urubko.

Award-winning author Bernadette McDonald traveled extensively to interview many of the climbers featured in this book--including Revol, the climbing partner of Tomek Mackiewicz, and Anna Mackiewicz, his widow, meeting them just a few months after Mackiewiczs death on Nanga Parbat. McDonalds many personal relationships with profiled climbers and her ability to tap into emotions and family histories lend Winter 8000 an intimacy too often lacking in mountaineering histories.

These accounts prove the point: Nature is not subservient to man.
