About the Author:

Born in South Tyrol, Reinhold Messner had climbed most of the hardest routes in the Dolomites and Western Alps by the age of 20. In the succeeding years he climbed all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks, most solo and without supplemental oxygen. He has written more than a dozen books on his adventures, including Everest, The Crystal Horizon, Free Spirit, Antarctica, and All 14 Eight-Thousanders.
