The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest [SIGNED]
New York: St. Martin's Press, 1997.
First Edition. Hardcover. Fine in a Fine dust jacket. First printing, signed on the half title page by both authors, with a brief inscription by Boukreev " To______ Namaste from the Himal!" dated 11/14/97, about a month before he was killed in an avalanche on Annapurna. This important book provides one of the several different viewpoints on the tragic events of the 1996 Everest climbing season, made famous by Jon Krakauer in Into Thin Air. Because Boukreev died not long after publication, signed copies of this book are quite scarce. This one, signed to a noted Pacific Northwest climber, is in as-new condition, and has a short article about Boukreev from the Seattle Times laid in.
