Everest : expedition to the ultimate by Reinhold Messner( Book )

'Everest by fair means – that is the human dimension, and that is what interests me ... In reaching for the oxygen cylinder, a climber degrades Everest ... a climber who doesn't rely on his own strength and skills, but on apparatus and drugs, deceives himself. In May 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler became the first climbers in history to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen – an event which made international headlines and permanently altered the future of mountaineering. Here Messner tells how the and Habeler accomplished the impossible – and how it felt. He describes the dangers of the Khumbu Icefield, the daunting Lhotse flank, two lonely storm-filled nights at 26,247 feet, and finally the last step to the summit. Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate is a riveting account of the exhaustion, the exhilaration and the despair of climbing into the death zone. The book also includes a history of the mountain, successful ascents and Messner's reflections on recent tragedies on Mount Everest. Reinhold Messner was the first to climb all fourteen peaks higher than 8,000 metres. The author of more than a dozen books on his adventures, he lives in a castle in northern Italy

Hamish Fulton : keep moving by Hamish Fulton( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in Italian and English and held by 80 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)

"In the half-century since Herzog's pioneering feat, climbing in the highest mountains of the world has changed and developed profoundly. Today it is possible to climb the notorious Annapurna even by its most demanding routes. Reinhold Messner traces this dramatic evolution in Annapurna: 50 Years of Expeditions in the Death Zone. Beginning with the thrilling story of Herzog's ascent, he pays tribute to Herzog's achievement (the team conquered completely unexplored terrain, relying on the equipment of the era) and lays to rest doubts and criticisms that have endured to this day." "Messner goes on to highlight the most exciting and significant ascents of the mountain since the 1950 expedition, including climbs led by Chris Bonington, Erhard Loretan, and those of Messner himself. Annapurna traces the evolution of the sport as it celebrates some of the most dramatic feats in mountaineering history."--BOOK JACKET
