But this expedition has always been shrouded in controversy and mystery- his brother Gunther, who accompanied him, met his death on the mountain. Now, over thirty years later, a bitter quarrel has broken out between Messner and the other participants in the Himalayan expedition. Is Messner to blame for his brother's death?

Extensively reviewed in the German media, this book is sure to arouse enormous interest in the UK climbing fraternity.

About Reinhold Messner

Reinhold Messner is the world's greatest mountaineer.

He has since completed a traverse of the Antarctic and now lectures throughout the world on his exploits.
