V pásmu napínavých dobrodružství se odvíjí tvrdošíjné úsilí lidí poznat dosud nenavštěvované kraje od tropů až po krajiny věčného ledu tak, jak se projevovalo během pěti století od Kolumba a Magellana až po R.E. Byrda. Autorsvylíčením unikátních příběhů se zároveň snaží ukázat, "že úspěch sám o sobě ještě nic neznamenal, protože dobyvateli současně připadl těžký úkol dát svým objevitelským činum kladný smysl."

Nanga Parbat pilgrimage : the great mountaineering classic by HERMANN BUHL( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1953 Hermann Buhl made the first ascent of Nanga Parbat – the ninth-highest mountain in the world, and the third 8,000-metre peak to be climbed, following Annapurna and Everest.

Buhl, though a member of a large expedition, made the summit push solo and set a new bar that measured mountaineers for the rest of the century. The account of Buhl's harrowing summit climb still thrills with its single-minded commitment and total loneliness. After Nanga Parbat, Buhl played no further part in the exciting mountaineering scene he had initiated. He died in a cornice accident while attempting Chogolisa"--Amazon.com
