Viesturs chronicles his three attempts to climb Annapurna, the world's 10th highest and statistically deadliest peak, while exploring the dramatic and tragic history of others who have made, or attempted, the ascent, and what these exploits teach us about facing life's greatest challenges. As a high school student in the flatlands of Illinois, Ed read and was captivated by Herzog's famous account of the first ascent of Annapurna in 1950. When he began his own campaign to climb the world's 14 highest peaks in the late 1980s, he looked forward with trepidation to undertaking Annapurna himself. Two failures to summit in 2000 and 2002 made Annapurna his nemesis. His successful 2005 ascent was the capstone of his climbing quest. In ‘The Will To Climb’ Ed brings the extraordinary challenges of Annapurna to vivid life through edge-of-your-seat accounts of the greatest climbs in the mountain’s history, and of his own failed attempts and eventual success.
