Detailed Product Description

2006, 1st UK edition. 256 pp, 300+ pp, many full page and full color. This work is a history of mountaineering adventure, celebrating 150 Years of the Alpine Club, from the author of the bestselling 'Everest'. The Alpine Club was the world's first mountaineering club, and is Britain's only national club for Alpinists. Its history is also the history of mountaineering; and its story is the story of those men with a passion for adventure who accomplished extraordinary feats against the odds. Since the Alpine Club was founded in 1857, its members have been at the leading edge of worldwide mountaineering development and exploration.

George Band begins his story at the very conception of the Alpine Club and takes us through the evolution of an exclusive Alpine tradition, how climbing developed between the wars, right through to post-war successes. He explores the Golden Decade of the 8000m Peaks during the 1950s, and how improvements in technology have enabled even steeper faces and bigger walls to be conquered. With a collection of photos from the Alpine Club archives never before published, this is a beautiful book to own as well as a compelling read. Large format hardcover, DJ, as New.
