Published by Angus & Robertson, London, 1965, 1st UK Edition, D/w (slight wear), V.G.    Story of Peter Taylor’s successful ‘one-man’ 1962 expedition to climb Langtang II in Northern Nepal.  English born Taylor was working in the Australian outback when he came up with the idea, applied for permission from the Nepalese Government, trained on local sand-hills, and set off for Nepal.  The trip became an epic, with bureacracy, bad weather and illness besetting him and his team of local porters, but eventually they succeeded in climbing the 21,592 foot peak.
