This is an old book documenting the first ascent of Makalu written by the expedition leader Jean Franco. It is very different from the current day mountaineering writing style. More of an account of the logistical aspects of the journey to the summit where the story ends, which might not be of interest to everyone. It is an incredibly revealing account of how much preparation and hardship was involved in just getting to base camp rarely experienced today. Would interest those who want to know how they did it 50 years ago.
