Detailed Product Description

National Geographic, 2003. 160 pp, color photos. Larger paperback. New.

SIGNED/Inscribed "To Fritz Best Wishes! Ed Viesturs" and SIGNED by David Breashears

This is primarily a pictorial account of Ed's 23+ Himalayan expeditions in quest of climbing all 14 8000 meter peaks. He has been to Everest at least 8 times, and this is his account of all those expeditions. 

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. New condition larger hardcover with dust jacket, SIGNED by Ed Viesturs.

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.
