Wiessner led the second American K2 expedition in 1939. The deaths of four members and lack of information concerning events led to much criticism. His only accounts in English were a brief article in the AAJ and then a later article in Appalachia which was extracted from this book. The copyright page states 1-3 edition which is the only way I have seen this in other copies. In German, no English translation. Quite scarce.
