Absturz des Himmels
288 Pages, gebunden
A story of responsibility, trust, and betrayal
On July 14, 1865, Englishman Edward Whymper becomes the first man to stand on the summit of the Matterhorn. On the climb down, however, four of his companions fall to their deaths. The actual hero of Messner’s breath-taking account, local climber Jean-Antoine Carrel, reaches the summit several days later. But unlike the dandy Edward Whymper, the second man to conquer the unmistakeable mountain is gruff, instinctive, and cares for his men even in the hour of his own death – on the Matterhorn.
