Detailed Product Description

London, 1960, 2nd Travel Book Club impression. 176 pp, 17 b/w plates. Green cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket has edge wear, book is fine. Near Fine condition.

A climb of Elbrus and other peaks in the Caucasus. After Joyce Dunsheaths party, this was the first non-communist climb in the Caucasus after WWII. One of the best (and only) modern books on the Caucasus.

John Hunt was born in India, and educated at Marlborough College and at Sandhurst. After a distinguished military career in India and Europe, he led the first successful expedition to climb Mount Everest and was knighted. He also led the British party in the British-Soviet Caucasian mountaineering expedition (1958), and was involved in mountaineering expeditions in western Europe, the Middle East, Himalayas, Greenland, Russia, Greece and Poland. From its inception in 1956, he was director of the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme and was created a life peer for services to youth on his retirement in 1966. He then became chairman of the Parole Board of England and Wales (1967-1974) and the National Association of Probation Officers (1974-1980) and championed penal reform. He became a Knight of the Garter in 1979. His publications include The Ascent of Everest (1953), Red Snows, Our Everest Adventure, In Search of Adventure, and his autobiography, Life is Meeting.
