The bestselling writer of No Shortcuts to the pinnacle and K2 chronicles his 3 makes an attempt to climb the world's tenth-highest and statistically deadliest top, Annapurna within the Himalaya, whereas exploring the dramatic and tragic historical past of others who've made -- or tried – the ascent, and what those exploits train us approximately dealing with life's maximum challenges.
            As a highschool scholar within the flatlands of Rockford, Illinois, the place the top gadgets at the horizon have been water towers, Ed Viesturs learn and used to be captivated through the French climber Maurice Herzog's recognized and grisly account of the 1st ascent of Annapurna in 1950. whilst he all started his personal crusade to climb the world's 14 optimum peaks within the overdue Eighties, Viesturs appeared ahead with trepidation to project Annapurna himself. mess ups to summit in 2000 and 2002 made Annapurna his nemesis.

This excessive fatality cost makes Annapurna the main risky of the 8,000-meter peaks.
Viesturs and co-author David Roberts chronicle Ed's 3 makes an attempt to climb Annapurna, in addition to the makes an attempt of others, from the 2 French climbers who made the landmark first ascent of Annapurna on June three, 1950, during the bold and tragic campaigns of such world-class mountaineers as Reinhold Messner and Anatoli Boukreev. Viesturs's money owed and analyses of those awesome adventures function some extent of departure for his exploration of topics vividly illustrated via Annapurna expeditions, together with obsession and dedication, worry and achievement, failure and triumph--issues which were overlooked within the another way very wealthy literature of hiking, and which could tell the lives and activities of every body.
