Detailed Product Description
Philadelphia, 1945, reprint. 479 pp, pictorial end papers. Dark green or tan hardcover with no dust jacket. May be the book club edition, Ex Lib or one of various reprints of 1945 book. Very Good to Near Fine condition.

A fictional account of climbing a big mountain in the Alps. The book was made into a feature movie years ago, starring Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges. Possibly the best selling mountaineering novel of all time.

"The White Tower, a Matterhorn-like mountain in the Swiss Alps, has never been climbed. Carla Alten's father, a famous mountaineer, died in a long-ago attempt. Now Carla, determined to fulfill her father's dream, has assembled an unusual climbing party to tackle the nearly-impossible ascent."

Wikipedia: James Ramsey Ullman (August 21, 1907 July 5, 1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York City. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering and geography.
