Jim Haberl's compelling and gorgeously illustrated first-person account of his successful 1993 assault on K2, the storied Himalayan mountain second only to Everest in altitude, bristles with danger and glistens with the splendor of his experience. You are at his side as he describes, step by step, the arduous ascent he and his companions forged to the top. He spares no detail of his emotions along the way -- exhilaration at his moment standing atop the world, and devastation at the death of his close friend and climbing partner, Dan Culver, on their descent from the peak.

Destined to become a classic of mountaineering lore, K2: Dreams and Reality will earn a cherished place on the bookshelves of experienced mountaineers and armchair explorers alike.

K2: Dreams and Reality is the fifth book in the Raincoast Journeys series.
