Review From User :
An exhaustive, meticulously researched and brilliantly narrated saga of Himalayan mountaineering right from its inception during the Raj till the end of the 20th century. This is the go-to book for anyone who is even remotely interested in mountaineering literature pertaining to the Himalayas. A huge book with relatively small font, it will keep you hooked from the very first chapter and inspire you by the grit and gumption of the explorers and mountaineers. The book is well endowed with pictures, which is the cherry on the cake (though I am afraid this is not the case with the e-book). My only complaint is that the book mentions Jerzy Kukuckza just once, that too in passing. While Messner's exploits are given their due, Kukuckza and his feats seem to have been neglected altogether. Notwithstanding this, the book is an authoritative piece on Himalayan mountaineering and a must- read for mountaineering literature buffs.
