159pp. Illus. "Ed Viesturs on the 8,000-Meter Giants." Introduction by David Breashears. N° de ref. de la librería 24962
Sinopsis: Now updated to include the triumphant culmination of a monumental quest—to stand on the summits of all fourteen of the world?s highest mountains— 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.
At the center of this extraordinary account of his mountaineering adventures are Viesturs?s own awe-inspiring photographs from the top of the world. This collection of images will show readers the deadly beauty and haunting menace of the Himalaya. A unique, inspiring, and spine-tingling glimpse into the rarified world of the extreme climber, Himalayan Quest will appeal not only to Viesturs?s significant fan base (fondly known as Edophiles or Edheads), but also to outdoor aficionados and armchair adventurers everywhere.
