The White Spider dramatically recreates not only the harrowing, successful ascent made by Harrer and his comrades in 1938, but also the previous, tragic attempts at a wall of rock that was recently enshrined in mountaineer Jon Krakauer’s first work, Eiger Dreams. For a generation of American climbers, The White Spider has been a formative book–yet it has long been out-of-print in America. This edition awaits discovery by Harrer’s new legion of readers.
Heinrich Harrer was born in 1912, in Carinthia. Following his adventures in Tibet, he participated in many mountaineering expeditions and wrote numerous books. Harrer passed away in 2006.
