A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This is an account of the successful ascent of the Mustagh Tower in 1984 by previously little-known British climbers, and a description of the author's own feelings and experiences as a novice climber on a full-blown Himalayan expedition. The reader follows him through his preparations, the problems of adjustment, the last-minute negotiation of financial and bureaucratic obstacles, the joys and hazards of the approach route from Rawalpindi through Baltistan. The book depicts the stark and hostile beauty of the highest mountain range in the world, as well as the warm fellowship at Base Camp and above. Andrew Greig gives portraits of the members of the team, going some way towards answering the inevitable questions of why climbers climb. Andrew Greig is the author of "Men on Ice", "Kingdoms of Experience" and "The Return of John Macnab".

Synopsis:

When poet Andrew Greig was asked by Scottish mountaineer Mal Duff to join his ascent of the Mustagh Tower in the Karakoram Himalayas, he had a poor head for heights and no climbing experience whatsoever. The result is this unique book. ''''Summit Fever'''' has been loved by climbers and literary critics alike for its refreshing candour, wit, insight and the haunting beauty of its writing. Much more than a book about climbing, it celebrates the risk, joy and adventure of being alive.
