Taylor, Rob THE BREACH: Kilimanjaro and the Conquest of Self
New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, (1981). 0698110862 / 9780698110861 First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good: wear to shelf edges, creased bump to fore-edge of lower rear cover, owner's address label to pastedown; in a price-clipped, age-toned, lightly used, near fine dust jacket. Illustrated with eight pages of color photographs.
More than a breathtaking adventure vigorously re-created, THE BREACH is the story of the making of climber, of a spiritual passage, of the joy of life lived urgently, of the ever-nearness of death. SIGNED by the author to the title-page.
