Detailed Product Description

New York, 1966, 1st US edition. 224 pp, 35 b/w illustrations, including photos and sketch maps, index. Original black cloth hardcover with gold lettering on spine and chipped dust jacket. Book is fine. Near Fine.

Account of the 1954 reconnaissance that preceded the 1955 first ascent. Three routes were explored, and a height of 5790 meters was achieved. A gripping tale of mountaineering. Tucker and his party did not attain the summit of the Himalayan peak, but their reconnaissance was an important factor in the later ascent to the peak led by Dr. Charles Evans. The mountain is the third highest in the world.
