Published by John Murray, London, 1951, Reprint of 1950 1st UK Edition, No D/w, V.G.   The authoritative climbing memoirs of Tom Longstaff (1875-1964), one of the most important explorers and climbers in early Himalayan mountaineering.  Best known for his ascent of Trisul (7,120m) in 1907, which remained the highest peak climbed for 21 years, though greater heights were reached on other mountains, notably Everest in 1922 (by the British Expedition of which Longstaff was a member).  President of the Alpine Club, expert naturalist and medical doctor, Longstaff climbed in most major ranges including Alps, Himalayas, Caucasus, Rockies, Spitsbergen and Greenland, was the first person to see into the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, and discovered the largest glacier on earth outside the Polar regions. Longstaff’s quest for knowledge is equaled only by his zest for adventure, both vividly reflected in these memoirs.
