Detailed Product Description
Stuttgart, Engelhorn-Verlag, 1929, 1st edition. 173 pp. In German. Softcover. Near Fine.

The classic novel about the most famous mountaineering drama in the Alps. Using reports, minutes and entries in his diary, Carl Haensel reconstructs the tragic events that occurred during the first ascent of the Matterhorn by the Englishman Edward Whymper. 

The bitter competition between him and the Italian mountain guide Carrel is described. This is one of the most exciting, but also most dramatic novels on Alpine climbing, and has been successfully filmed several times by and with Luis Trenker, including in 1938 under the title Der Berg Ruft.
