Heinrich Harrer's Seven Years in Tibet
Heinrich Harrer was a Austrian mountaineer and explorer. In 1938, he was one a four man expedition to make the first ascent of the North Face of the Eiger, which was considered the "Last Problem" for mountaineering in the Alps.
Following that ascent, he joined a separate expedition to ascend the Diamar Face of Nanga Parbat in the Himalayas. However, while in India, WWII broke out, and Harrer's expedition—comprised of German and Austrian nationals—was interned in a prison camp.
In 1944, Harrer and several fellow detainees escaped from their camp, crossed the Himalayas, and made their way into the neutral and famously reclusive nation of Tibet. They snuck their way into the Forbidden City of Lhasa—then closed to foreigners— and managed to spend the next several years living and working amongst the Tibetans, even befriending and tutoring the young Dalai Lama.
Seven Years in Tibet is Harrer's personal account of these years and provides a widow into a world that was closed to outsiders, a world which following the Chinese invasion and rule of Tibet, likely shall never exist again.
This edition was published by the Reprint Society in 1955, two years after the true first edition. It includes several black and white photos from Harrer's journey.
The book is in pristine, unmarked condition, with a tight binding and hinges, and included an original dust jacket in a Mylar protective cover.
