Detailed Product Description
A very good to near fine copy of this classic magazine. 

Articles in this magazine are as follows

  • AMERICANS CLIMB K2: The Ultimate Challenge. 25 page article of the first American Ascent of K2 by John Roskelley, Lou Reichardt, Jim Wickwire and Rick Ridgeway. Photos, maps of the Climb of K2 by an American Team. Articles written by Jim Whittaker and Jim Wickwire.


Rick Ridgeway generously SIGNED copies of the May 1979 National Geographic which featured him on the cover. He was part of a team that made the first American ascent of K2. 

As of May 2022: This is the first time we have ever asked any climber featured in National Geographic to sign his cover photo. With a 1970s & 1980s circulation of over 10 million copies, this was the No 1 or 2 (after TV Guide) highest circulation of all American Magazines. At 3 million (in 2022) it is No 11 in the USA). Other NG cover climbers we possibly should have done are Ed Hillary, Reinhold Messner, Tom Hornbein, Conrad Anker, and Alex Honnold. 
  • Jane Goodall - Gombe Chimpanzees
  • The People Who Made Saskatchewan
  • Napa, Valley of the Vine
  • Hawaii's Precious Corals
