Michigan, Privately Published,  1992, 1st edition. 176 pages, many b/w photos. Hardcover in handsome blue original cloth with black letters on spine and cover design (same as the DJ). With its original dust jacket, Fine.

This copy is signed by Fred Hendel, the author.

The author climbed two mountain in Bolivia over 20,000 feet, and mentions all the major peaks: Huayna Potosi, Illimani, Illampu, Chalcataya, Chachacomani, Salcantay, 20 peaks altogether. 

The author and a few friends introduced skiing to Bolivia in 1939. They built a road to the ski area, built a ski lodge, and the first ski lift in South America, all at 17,000 feet, where the atmospheric pressure is 50% of that at sea level. He describes his climbs in Bolivia, the advantages and disadvantages of climbing with a rope, and includes a glossary of mountaineering terms.
