Doctor on Everest

Hurry - Only 3 left in stock!
Peter Steele had already spent several years trekking and working in the Himalayas when he reluctantly took the position of medical officer on the 1971 International Everest Expedition. He expected it to be a hard climb; what he didn't expect were the series of disasters that included a near-epidemic, a walk-out, and the death of a team member. Struggling against bad weather, hostile news reports, and violent infighting, the members still attempted to climb the world's highest mountain by the treacherous, never-before-attempted southwest face. As much an exposi of Steele's colorful climbing companions, foreign and Sherpa, as a chronology of the perilous day-to-day drudgery of attempting a difficult new route on the world's highest mountain, Doctor on Everest is a white-knuckle ride into an extreme environment and a compelling picture of the limits of human endurance.
