Detailed Product Description

New York, E.P. Dutton, 1953, 2nd printing. 239 pp, maps. Red cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Fine condition.

Many people consider this one of the greatest of all climbing stories. Benuzzi, an Italian prisoner during WWII, escaped from a POW camp to climb Mt. Kenya! In 1943, Felice Benuzzi and two Italian compatriots escaped from a British POW camp in equatorial East Africa with only one goal in mind - to climb the dangerous seventeen-thousand-foot Mount Kenya. Leaving a written 'parole' declaring they would return in two weeks, Benuzzi and two companions nearly scaled Mount Kenya on stolen rations, and improvised climbing equipment. Once done, they broke back into their camp to surrender! An extraordinary tale of war and mountaineering.
