Detailed Product Description

New York, Scribner's, 1925, 3rd printing. 188 pp, 34 b/w illustrations, folding map.  Binding is tight, cover bright, previous owner's name written very discretely, spine has few spots, overall Near Fine. Internally Fine, externally Near Fine. 

This book was remarkably popular for its time, besides the first edition in 1914 it was reprinted in 1918, 1921 and finally in 1925. The only difference  between them is the 1925 version does not use the front cover title and illustration. 

There was a great rush to make the first ascent of America's highest peak. After several previous attempts, this describes the actual first ascent of McKinley. The Ascent of Denali is a narrative of the 1913 expedition of the first ascent of Mount McKinley. Hudson Stuck and his three companions overcame great challenges from extreme cold to explosive storms during their climb. 

The Katmai explosion and earthquake in 1912 had left their route up the Northeast ridge a jumble of house-sized blocks of ice. Finally on June 7, 1913, the young Athabascan Walter Harper was the first person to set foot on the rooftop of North America. Stuck tells a compelling story complete with observations of the natural world through careful prose. Maps and high-quality photographs make The Ascent of Denali an irresistible adventure.
