Synopsis:

"If my library was to somehow catch fire and I could only save one book, the long out of print Conquistadors of the Useless, by Lionel Terray, would be it." -- Explore magazine
"The finest mountaineering narrative ever written." -- David Roberts, author of Mountain of My Fear
* One of National Geographic Adventure's "100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time"

* The story of ground-breaking climbs told with insight and wit

* A mountaineering classic brought back into print
Frenchman Lionel Terray is one of mountaineering history's greatest alpinists, and his autobiography, Conquistadors of the Useless, stands among the "100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time", according to National Geographic Adventure magazine. Following World War II, when France desperately needed successes to heal its wounds, Terray emerged as a national hero, conquering summits atop the planet's highest mountains.
This biography of Lionel Terry is filled with first-time feats and acts of bravery in the face of unspeakable odds. He climbed with legends such as Maurice Herzog, Gaston Rebuffat, and Louis Lachenal. He made first ascents in the Alps, Alaska, the Andes, and the Himalaya. Terray's gripping story captures the energy of an optimistic world shaking off the restraints of war and austerity. It's a mountaineering classic.

About the Author: LIONEL TERRAY made first ascents in the Alps, Alaska, the Andes and the Himalaya.
