The First Conquest of an 8000-metre Peak


A classic of its kind...His vivid high powered but never overdramatised account of the ascent still reads splendidly". ("The Irish Times"). In 1950 no mountain higher than 8000 meters had ever been climbed. Maurice Herzog and other members of the French Alpine Club resolved to try. This is the enthralling story of the first conquest of Annapurna and the harrowing descent. With breathtaking courage and grit manifest on every page "Annapurna" is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. As well as an introduction by Joe Simpson this new edition includes 16 pages of photographs which provide a remarkable visual record of this legendary expedition."
