Kozjek was a top Slovenian mountaineerer, photographer, and writer with a 30-year career of mountaineering. This covers his climbs on Široka peč (1981), Gangapurna (1983), Yosemite – The Shield (1984), Jalung Kang (1985), Yosemite – North American Wall (1985), Cerro Torre (1985/86), Broad Peak & Gasherbrum II (1986), Dhaulagiri (1987), K2 (1988), Shisha Pangma (1989), Everest (1st Slovenian without supplemental oxygen, 1997), Ranrapalca (1999), Huandoy (2001), Siula Grande (2002), Chacraraju (2004), Trapecio (2005) and Cho Oyu (new route SW face, solo, awarded Poilet D’or, 2006). In 2006, he achieved worldwide recognition for his photos of the shootings of Tibetan pilgrims on the Nangpa La, near Cho Oyu. In 2008, Kozjek was on an expedition attempting a new route on Muztagh Tower when he stepped through a cornice and was killed. This is a very nice tribute book utilizing Kozjek’s own writing with additional material by Grošelj, Jelinčič, Meško, Podgornik, Štremfelj, Tomazin, and others. Also included is a 88-minute DVD consisting of six films depicting Cerro Torre, Shisha Pangma, Yosemite, Everest, Huandoy, and Trapecio. This book weighs 2¾ pounds. In Slovenian, no English translation.
