EVEREST THE CRUEL WAY

EVEREST THE CRUEL WAY

Everest The Cruel Way

Joe Tasker

London, 1981, Methuen, First U.K. Edition. 166 pp. 26 ills. This story of the 1980 British Everest Winter Expedition includes delightful insights on people and mountains. Joe Tasker was a fine and thoughtful writer, widely admired, yet he only wrote two books. This is his most scarce book, very hard to find. Signed by Chris Bonington, leader of the expedition.
