Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1980, 1st edition. 164 pp, many color photos. Large format hardcover, with dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine condition.

Expeditions to Nun Kun, Trango Tower, plus trekking in Nepal. From the dust jacket: “If the word ‘Himalaya’ conjures up an image of a mountain paradise inhabited by cheerful villagers, then this book will shock you.” Through words and photographs, Galen Rowell explores the effects of modern life and tourism on the world’s highest places: the mountains of Nepal, India and Pakistan.

'Through words and photographs, Galen Rowell explores the effects of modern life and tourism on the world's highest places: the mountains of Nepal, India, and Pakistan.
