    PDF/EPUB Maurice Herzog ä Annapurna Epub ✓ ä annapurna kindle, Annapurna ePUBThe writer or the translator described the events in this book in a way that made it not worth my time I was astoundingly impressed with what was accomplished considering the technology they had while smoking but found myself scanning through pages that left a lot to be desired

    PDF/EPUB Maurice Herzog ä Annapurna Epub ✓ ä annapurna kindle, Annapurna ePUBThe summit of Annapurna was a masterpiece of climbing and the book is nothing short of a bible for enthusiasts however if you’re new to the genre I would still recommend Eiger Dreams by Krakauer Its much approachable and far less studied Annapurna took a while to get off the ground both for the men tackling the rock and for the narrative They had to find

    PDF/EPUB Maurice Herzog ä Annapurna Epub ✓ ä annapurna kindle, Annapurna ePUBI'm torn between one star and five Five star for the high adventure one star for how the the expedition team treated the locals This book gives account of 1950 French expedition to Annapurna where they have to actually locate the mountain first before climbing it The book itself is a page turner I practically finished the last half or in one sitting While all these are fine and dandy what is NOT okay is to force yes literally force the villagers to work as porters take the load of the expedition and even carry the injured members of the expeditions What was it to the unsuspecting labor working in a paddy field who were forced to act as coolies that these white men lost their toes trying to summit a 8000 meter mountain? What part of all the glory and pride did th

    PDF/EPUB Maurice Herzog ä Annapurna Epub ✓ ä annapurna kindle, Annapurna ePUBA readable telling of the first summiting of an 8000m mountain a few years before Hillary climbed Everest with Tensing It was the days of bare footed porters climbers smoking cigarettes at any given opportunity and Indian Survey maps which only vaguely resemble to actual lie of the land In fact a chapter is devoted to wandering about attempting to locate AnnapurnaThere is some controversy over whether the climb eventuated the way this book is told where Herzog does take a lot of the glory of the expeditionRegardless of how romanticised the story told is and despite the fact I have read uite a lot of mountain climbing books I really don't fundamentally understand the personal drive reuired for climbing To me it is absolute madness to push on regardless of common sense knowing that if you somehow do survive frostbite and the los

    PDF/EPUB Maurice Herzog ä Annapurna Epub ✓ ä annapurna kindle, Annapurna ePUBThis is a bit of a slog until they get to Annapurna and start the summit After that point it becomes a gripping story A large part of me finds it hard to believe such adventures are called a success when the only reason many of the French climbing team is alive is because Sherpas literally carried them down the mountain and then all the way to India while the white men's digits were literally rot
