Item description for Everest by Roberto Mantovani...

The mighty, inaccessible peaks of Mt. Everest have always posed an irresistible challenge to those motivated to test their mettle against the harsh conditions. Packed with spectacular archival and specially commissioned photographs, this book examines the history of Everest mountaineering through thrilling journey reports. The authors describe in detail the planning required for such a monumental climb and the technical means used in the Everest climbing adventures of modern mountaineering. The narrative recounts the various chapters in the mountaineering history of Everest, from the first reconnaissance in 1921 to the first victorious climb and the accomplishments-and failures-of recent decades. We meet the ambitious adventurers, revel in their triumphs, and experience the tragedies as well. Throughout the book the lively text and vivid photographs transport readers on a journey they will never forget.
Roberto Mantovani is a researcher at the National Mountaineering Museum of Turin. He has written several volumes on skiing and hiking, including K2 (White Star), which he co-authored with Kurt Diemberger, and has curated exhibitions at the National Mountaineering Museum of Turin. Kurt Diemberger has climbed some of the world's most daunting peaks, and was the first to climb two of them-the Broad Peak and the Dhaulagiri. He has produced several major documentaries on his experiences.
