Detailed Product Description

USA, 2001, 1st edition (only edition). 240 pp, color photos. Remembered for his role on Everest in May 1996, Boukreev left diaries of his many fast and daring climbs on McKinley, K2, Makalu, Manaslu, and Everest. including Everest 4 times. This book will appeal to all those who admired the great climber, or anyone fascinated by the 8000 meter peaks. During his lifetime, Anatoli Boukreev climbed 11 of the world's 14 8,000-meter peaks, them all had he lived. He would have been perhaps the 7th or 8th person to climb them all.
