Wilfred Thesiger, this century's greatest living explorer, recalls his travels among the mountain ranges of Asia. Drawing on his unpublished diaries Thesiger brilliantly documents the hardships, dangers and rewards of mountain travel. Eventful, interesting and remarkable achievements in their own right, here are Thesiger's Asian journeys - among the Hindu Kush, the Karakorams and the Pamirs.
Each of his journeys has a unique quality, captured in some of the finest photographs he has ever taken - images of startling beauty, many of which are reproduced here for the first time.
