Thin Air: Encounters in the Himalayas
Greg Child

This book describes three different, incredibly difficult climbs in the Himalayas. The photography is incredible and really illustrates the beauty and difficulty of the climbs; one memorable picture shows the team inching their way on their seats across a knife-edge ridge with one leg on each side of the ridge.

A remarkable book that was a finalist for the 1988 Boardman Tasker Memorial Award.
