Detailed Product Description
UK, 2020, 1st UK edition. 266 pp, color and b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. New.

The British publisher of Bernadette's 2020 book on climbing the 8000m peaks in winter rand 250 copies in a beautiful orange cloth hardcover, with silver lettering on the book spine. The USA edition is a paperback. A second half title page has been added and that is where the numbering and signature live. This is copy number 226. We have only this one copy. We got this copy from a customer who is selling us some books. From a receipt in the book it appears he paid about $100 once he covered international airmail postage.

While you wouldn’t expect climbing an 8000-meter peak in winter to be a popular activity, there have been 178 expeditions (as of 2019) to the Himalaya and Karakoram during the cruelest season to do just that. Polish alpinist, Voytek Kurtyka, termed the practice the "art of suffering." 

This is the British edition. The USA and Canadian editions are paperback only. We brought these (unsigned copies) in for people who prefer hardcover books to paperbacks.

The stories here range from the French climber Elisabeth Revol’s solo winter attempt of Makalu, to American Cory Richards and his dramatic effort on Gasherbrum II with famed Italian alpinist Simone Moro and Kazakh hard man Denis Urubko.

Award-winning author Bernadette McDonald traveled extensively to interview many of the climbers featured in this book -- including Revol, the climbing partner of Tomek Mackiewicz, and Anna Mackiewicz, his widow, meeting them just a few months after Mackiewicz’s death on Nanga Parbat. McDonald’s many personal relationships with profiled climbers and her ability to tap into emotions and family histories lend Winter 8000 an intimacy too often lacking in mountaineering histories.

These accounts prove the point: Nature is not subservient to man.
