The memoirs of the first American to climb Mt. Everest in 1963. Whittaker’s career has included many firsts in addition to Everest; first manager, employee and CEO of REI, first ascent of Mt. Kennedy (1965), leader of two K2 expeditions (1975, 1978), leader of the Mt. Everest Peace Climb (1990), and much more. This second edition of Whittaker’s memoir is an expanded, larger-format work than that published in 1999. This includes many more color photos spread throughout, an additional forward by Ed Viesturs, and a new chapter. A nice looking, hefty book!
