At long last, an English-language book on the great Polish climber Wanda Rutkiewicz. Rutkiewicz was regarded as the top woman climber of her day with ascents of eight 8000m peaks - Everest (1978), Nanga Parbat (1985), K2 (1986), Shishapangma (1987), Gasherbrum II (1989), Gasherbrum I (1990), Cho Oyu and Annapurna (1991). Tragically, she disappeared while attempting Kangchenjunga in 1992. This is a terrific, large-format book chock-full of photos. True first edition, in German.
