"Several b/w photos in book 177 pages. A story of the conquests of the highest and most perilous mountain range in the world by the Associate Justice, United States Supreme Court. For centuries the towering peaks of the Himalaya have been one of the great landmarks of Asia. Running east and west for miles on end, this mighty mountain range has served as a massive barricade protecting India against the northern conquerors. The author's personal experiences as a mountain climber and traveler have enabled him to give a vivid, firt-hand account of the lives of the people who dwell in the shadows of the towering pinnacles and the rigors and hardships endured by those who have conquered the treacherous Himalayan peaks."
