'Everest by fair means – that is the human dimension, and that is what interests me ... In reaching for the oxygen cylinder, a climber degrades Everest ... a climber who doesn't rely on his own strength and skills, but on apparatus and drugs, deceives himself. In May 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler became the first climbers in history to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen – an event which made international headlines and permanently altered the future of mountaineering. Here Messner tells how the and Habeler accomplished the impossible – and how it felt. He describes the dangers of the Khumbu Icefield, the daunting Lhotse flank, two lonely storm-filled nights at 26,247 feet, and finally the last step to the summit. Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate is a riveting account of the exhaustion, the exhilaration and the despair of climbing into the death zone. The book also includes a history of the mountain, successful ascents and Messner's reflections on recent tragedies on Mount Everest. Reinhold Messner was the first to climb all fourteen peaks higher than 8,000 metres. The author of more than a dozen books on his adventures, he lives in a castle in northern Italy

Die weisse Einsamkeit : mein langer Weg zum Nanga Parbat by Reinhold Messner( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mein Scheitern hat mich groß gemacht", schreibt Reinhold Messner. Nirgendwo liegen für ihn Triumph und Tragödie so eng beieinander wie am Nanga Parbat - hier verlor er seinen Bruder, und hier glückte ihm später der schwierigste Alleingang seiner Karriere. Nanga Parbat ist Sanskrit und bedeutet 'Nackter Berg'. In den mächtigen Eisfeldern und Felsrippen dieses gefürchtetsten aller Achttausender ließen die größten Alpinisten der Erde ihr Leben. 1970 stand Reinhold Messner zum erstenmal am Fußdes Nackten Berges. Und wenn ihm auch die für unmöglich gehaltene Überschreitung gelingen sollte, reist er doch als Gescheiterter ab - sein Bruder Günther wird beim Abstieg unter einer Eislawine begraben. Kein anderer Berg vereint seither für ihn Schuld und Schicksal so unauflöslich miteinander wie der Nanga Parbat. Sechsmal kehrt Reinhold Messner noch zu ihm zurück, um Antworten auf all seine Fragen zu finden. Wenige Wochen nach seiner Everest-Besteigung zieht es ihn auch 1978 wieder dorthin, er will ihn nun im Alleingang nehmen - allein gegen die eigene Angst. Die weiße Einsamkeit ist Reinhold Messners ganz persönliche Chronik des Nanga Parbat

Hamish Fulton : keep moving by Hamish Fulton( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in Italian and English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keep Moving is an artist's book that Hamish Fulton, the British "walking artist," conceived for MUSEION-Museum of Modern and Contemporary art in Bolzano. At the core of Fulton's art are the experiences he accumulates during his walks: the exploration of self and the encounter with nature become one and the same. Fulton's works, in the form of photography and pictograme he combines with texts, are the distillation of these walks. Keep Moving is the result of eight days spent in the Corvara region of the Dolomites in the summer of 2004, during which the artist went on eight day-long walks and a guided climb, using a small mountain hut as his base. Deeply influenced by legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, in 2001 Hamish Fulton and Messner hiked together along the trail at the 5,000-year old iceman Otzi. (Back cover)

"As 'Fall of Heaven' begins, we join professional mountain guide Jean Antoine Carrel as he tries and fails, again and again, to summit the Matterhorn, one of the most famous and iconic peaks in the Alps. Is it the Devil's mountain, as the locals call it? Should he heed the village priest who warned that its summit was not meant to be climbed? Carrel is undeterred, he just needs capable climbers to join him. Enter Edward Whymper, who in 1861 at the age of 21 decided, unbeknownst to Carrel, that he would be the first to climb the Matterhorn."--Provided by publisher

Annapurna : 50 years of expeditions into the death zone by Reinhold Messner( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the half-century since Herzog's pioneering feat, climbing in the highest mountains of the world has changed and developed profoundly. Today it is possible to climb the notorious Annapurna even by its most demanding routes. Reinhold Messner traces this dramatic evolution in Annapurna: 50 Years of Expeditions in the Death Zone. Beginning with the thrilling story of Herzog's ascent, he pays tribute to Herzog's achievement (the team conquered completely unexplored terrain, relying on the equipment of the era) and lays to rest doubts and criticisms that have endured to this day." "Messner goes on to highlight the most exciting and significant ascents of the mountain since the 1950 expedition, including climbs led by Chris Bonington, Erhard Loretan, and those of Messner himself. Annapurna traces the evolution of the sport as it celebrates some of the most dramatic feats in mountaineering history."--BOOK JACKET
