Detailed Product Description
National Geographic, 159 pp, 150+ color photos. New larger paperback.

Ed Viesturs is America's best known Himalayan climber, only 2 peaks short of climbing all 14 800 meter peaks. This is mostly a photo book, a commemoration of Ed's many Himalayan climbs. Himalayan Quest offers an unforgettable glimpse into the remarkable world of Ed Viesturs, America’s best-known high altitude climber, and the breathtaking landscape in which he works. It is an unparalleled showcase of both the heartbreaking tragedy and the ineffable joy Viesturs has experienced while striving at the limits of human endurance. Written with Peter Potterfield, an award-winning mountaineering journalist, Viesturs narrates his quest to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world - those peaks above 8,000 meters in height. Large format paperback. These are the 14 8000 meter peaks: Mount Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Nanga Parbat, Annapurna, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak, Shishapangma, Gasherbrum II.
