Published by William Morrow/Sweet Springs Press, New York, 1986, 1st US Edition, D/w, Fine.   The author had published two widely acclaimed books in America when he was asked to join the China/Everest ’84 Expedition, as a biographer. The very strong expedition, led by Lou Whittaker, was to attempt a new route on Everest’s North Face and included experienced mountaineers such as Jim Wickwire and Jon Roskelley. The book describes his journey to Tibet, his experiences on Mount Everest, his travels through Central China, mostly in Inner Mongolia, and concludes with a dramatic recap of what happened on the successful 1984 Everest expedition.
