True Summit

£19.99

Product description

Constable, London, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 8vo. 237 pages, b/w illustrations. original dust jacket, Original hardback binding, Contents clean and tight, unmarked, no inscriptions


The first conquest made of an 8000-metre peak occurred in June 1950, when a French team reached the summit of Annapurna. Maurice Herzog, the leader, became a national hero and his account of the expedition remains a best-selling mountaineering book. But the book left much unsaid, for far from the solidarity portrayed by Herzog, the team was riven with dissent.;This volume seeks to offer the real story of the Annapurna expedition. David Roberts gives the three climbers who accompanied Herzog - Lachenal, Lionel Terray and Gaston Rebuffat - long overdue recognition for their achievement. He has also interviewed Herzog, the one survivor among the climbers, and puts his account of their climb into perspective.
