Published by George Allen & Unwin, London, 1977, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.    Galen Rowell (1940-2002) was an accomplished American mountaineer, wilderness photographer, author and adventure photojournalist, who was tragically killed, along with his wife, in a plane crash in California in 2002.    In this acclaimed book, Galen Rowell not only records the unsuccessful 1975 American K2 Expedition using both his own diaries and those of others on the expedition, but also weaves in a significant history of exploration and mountaineering on K2 and the wider Karakoram.  This is a large-format volume, very well illustrated with excellent colour and black-and-white photographs.
