Pakistan's magnificent K2 is known also as "The savage mountain." At 28,250 feet it is second only to Everest in height but first in difficulty to climb, endowed with the worst weather in the Himalaya. Five times, American mountaineers had tried to climb this mountain, and failed. Five men had died in these attempts. This is the story of the year that the Americans took care of their unfinished business. In 1978, under the leadership of Everest-veteran Jim Whittaker (himself trying K2 for the second time), fourteen men and women set out with a common goal: to work together to get sombody, anybody, to the top of K2

The shadow of Kilimanjaro : on foot across East Africa by Rick Ridgeway( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in Spanish and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying Ridgeway on his trek is a cast of characters memorable not just for the strength of their personalities but for the history and culture of the Tsavo that each represents. Led by Iain Allan, considered by many the most experienced mountaineer and guide in East Africa, the team includes the sons of the legendary Tsavo warden Bill Woodley, now park wardens themselves. Though these men may unwittingly represent the heritage of the "white hunter," their presence on the journey is balanced by Mohamed and Lokiyor, each from a separate Kenyan tribe. The sense of history that infuses this journey is reflected by others encountered along the way, either in person or in stories told: the remnant members of the Waliangulu tribe, the legendary elephant-hunting "People of the Long Bow," and numerous figures in African life past and present, from J.H. Patterson and Denys Finch Hatton to David Western, Richard Leakey, and Joyce Poole

The true cost( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Pullover oder eine Hose für weniger als 10 Euro, ein Hemd für 5 - oft geht man in Kleidungsgeschäfte und ist begeistert, wie billig die neueste Mode bei uns zu haben ist. Doch wie kann es sein, dass Kleidung bei uns so wenig kostet? THE TRUE COST macht sich auf die Suche und verfolgt eindrucksvoll den Weg, den die Kleidung macht, bevor sie zu uns in die Geschäfte kommt. Die bedrückende Antwort auf die Frage ist: Es darf nicht sein! Es gibt kaum einen Markt, bei dem Schein und Realität so weit auseinander liegen wie bei der Bekleidungsindustrie. Auf der einen Seite gibt es Modeschauen mit Starmodels und rotem Teppich, auf der anderen Seite wird die Kleidung zumeist unter sklavenähnlichen Bedingungen in Drittweltländern produziert. THE TRUE COST zeigt diese Kette auf: Wo wird die Kleidung hergestellt und welche Arbeitsbedingungen herrschen dort? Was passiert in den Ländern, in denen riesige Wassermengen für die Baumwolle benötigt wird, während die Menschen verdursten? Die Ausbeutung von Mensch und Natur, die hinter den Preisen steckt, ist katastrophal - die Verdrängung dieser Tatsache in der westlichen Welt erschreckend und beschämend. Wer würde schon eine Hose kaufen, wenn er wüsste, dass dafür ein Kind verdursten musste, oder die Näherin in den Trümmern einer eingestürzten Fabrik gestorben ist? Diese Dokumentation zeigt die erschütternde Wahrheit: Die Kosten für unsere Kleidung müssen andere bezahlen. (Quelle: Umschlag)
