K2 : siren of the Himalayas( Visual )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four world-class alpinists including National Geographic's "Explorer of the Year" Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner team up in a dangerous foray of high altitude mountaineering in the breathtaking documentary K2: Siren of the Himalayas. The film follows an attempt to reach the summit of the world's most challenging peak on the 100-year anniversary of the Duke of Abruzzi's landmark K2 expedition.K2 also explores the history and geography of the legendary Karakoram Mountain Range, while contemplating the risks, rewards and personal nature of exploration in an age when there are few blank spots left on the map. The second highest peak on Earth at 8,611 meters, K2 is also one of the most dangerous mountains to climb: for every four people who have reached the summit, one has died trying. As Ernest Hardy wrote in The Village Voice, "K2 offers great beauty while capturing something of what pulls the adventurous to try to reach the world's second highest peak."

"Seventy years ago antibiotics revolutionized medicine. Only now are we realizing the potentially catastrophic consequences of these miracle drugs. The question is: have we reached a point where we must save antibiotics to save ourselves? Resistance sets out to answer that question and more. Microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights propel this eye-opening and sometimes infuriating look at antibiotic resistance, starting from the first mass production of antibiotics to the rise of superbugs in the 21st century."--Container
