Short Synopsis
Annapurna provides an account of the Maurice Herzog's conquest of the Himalaya peak, and the difficulties that arose afterward.

Full Synopsis
One of Sports Illustrated's Top 100 Sports Books of All Time: A gripping firsthand account of one of the most daring climbing expeditions in history.

Annapurna I is the name given to the 8,100-meter mountain that ranks among the most forbidding in the Himalayan chain. Dangerous not just for its extreme height but for a long and treacherous approach, its summit proved unreachable until 1950, when a group of French mountaineers made a mad dash for its peak. They became the first men to accomplish the feat, doing so without oxygen tanks or any of the modern equipment that contemporary climbers use. The adventure nearly cost them their lives.

Maurice Herzog dictated this firsthand account of the remarkable trek from a hospital bed as he recovered from injuries sustained during the climb. An instant bestseller, it remains one of the most famous mountaineering books of all time, and an enduring testament to the power of the human spirit.
