Annapurna by Maurice Herzog

Annapurna is a book by Maurice Herzog, expedition leader of the first recorded expedition to reach the summit of Annapurna in the Himalayas. The original text was written in French, first published in 1951, and has been translated to a number of languages. The expedition recorded a place in history by being the first to attain the summit of the highest peak so-far to be climbed at the time. It was also the first of the eight-thousanders -- peaks higher than 8,000m, which occur only in the Himalayas. Members of the expedition included Lionel Terray, Louis Lachenaland, and Gaston Rebuffat then regarded as some of the finest mountaineers in the world, now regarded as among the finest ever.
