For centuries Europeans shunned the Alps, fearing them to be realms of icy terror, inhospitable regions that harbored dragons, demons, witches, and all sorts of alien beings. Yet their fear eventually turned to curiosity and Fleming recounts the incredible exploits of the men who explored Europe's frozen wilderness. The conquest of the Alps, a central chapter in the history of mountaineering, is a hair-raising and thrillingly eccentric tale, captured here by a remarkable storyteller.
