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

Renowned explorer and adventurer Rick Ridgeway takes us on a walk, a five-hundred-kilometer trek from the icy summit of Mr. Kilimanjaro across the famed Tsavo parks of Kenya to the shores of the Indian Ocean. Here is a rare and thrilling view, as Ridgeway and his party find themselves eyeball to eyeball with lion and buffalo, elephant and crocodile. But Ridgeway has more in mind than sheer adventure.

The true cost by Andrew Morgan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 5 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)
