Washburn was one of the great explorers and adventurers of the 20th century. This book provides the most detailed look at his multifaceted, exciting career. Washburn was renowned for his pioneering work in aerial photography in Alaska’s mountains, his thirteen first ascents of Alaskan peaks, his devotion to science, and his decades-long relationship with the National Geographic Society. Washburn was also famed for his meticulous cartography, having mapped McKinley, Everest, Washington, and the Grand Canyon. He led the first ascent of the popular West Buttress route on Mount McKinley and, for four decades, he was a major player in leading and developing Boston’s Museum of Science. This autobiography also offers rare photographs and little-known anecdotes about Washburn’s World War II service, other explorations, and his special partnership with wife Barbara.

This is a special, leather bound, limited edition which has been signed by both Washburn and Freedman on a special numbered limitation page. The book is boxed which itself is titled and numbered.
