Reinhold Messner –
All Fourteen 8000ers

There are 14 peaks in the world that surpass the 8,000 meter mark, all located in the Himalayan or Karakoram mountain ranges in Asia, and many climbers are in the process of trying to climb them all. The first person to conquer the 14 peaks was Italian Reinhold Messner who climbed his first 8,000 meter peak in 1970 and finished his last in 1986.

What motivated Messner to be so dedicated in pursuit of his goal, despite unbelievable hardships, to keep confronting danger, death, loneliness, and self-doubt? The answer can be found in this revealing memoir. Through engaging text and full-color and black-and-white photos, readers will get a glimpse of the preparation, organization, and running of an expedition, and share rare moments on the summits of the world’s highest peaks. This updated edition also includes Messner’s comments on Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air.
