Annapurna: The First Conquest of an 8,000-Meter Peak by Maurice Herzog

Annapurna is the unforgettable account of this heroic climb and of its harrowing aftermath, including a nightmare descent of frostbite, snow blindness, and near death. Maurice Herzog is a legendary French mountaineer and sports administrator. In 1950 he became the first person to conquer an 8,000-meter peak, Annapurna. His accomplishment was surpassed only when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Everest in 1953. He lives in Lyon, France.
