As a boy, climbing legend Reinhold Messner was inspired by another legend: George Mallory's tragic final ascent of Mount Everest in 1924. To Messner, and to thousands of others, Mallory's attempt--whether or not it succeeded--remains the greatest exploit in the annals of mountain climbing. Though Mallory's body was finally found, we have lost, Messner believes, the spirit that guided him; summiting Everest has become merely a corporate challenge and a matter of technology, not a rendezvous with destiny. Using the British climber's journals and letters, Messner thrillingly re-creates Mallory's three assaults on Everest, including his final ascent. Here is both an investigation into the death of George Mallory and a deeply felt homage--to a mountain, to the spirit of an age, and to the man who inspired those who followed in his footsteps

Hamish Fulton : keep moving by Hamish Fulton( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in Italian and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Keep Moving is an artist's book that Hamish Fulton, the British "walking artist," conceived for MUSEION-Museum of Modern and Contemporary art in Bolzano. At the core of Fulton's art are the experiences he accumulates during his walks: the exploration of self and the encounter with nature become one and the same. Fulton's works, in the form of photography and pictograme he combines with texts, are the distillation of these walks. Keep Moving is the result of eight days spent in the Corvara region of the Dolomites in the summer of 2004, during which the artist went on eight day-long walks and a guided climb, using a small mountain hut as his base. Deeply influenced by legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, in 2001 Hamish Fulton and Messner hiked together along the trail at the 5,000-year old iceman Otzi. (Back cover)
