In 1950, a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog became the first in history to reach the summit of Annapurna, the highest mountain in the Himalayas. This was a major achievement that marked a new era in mountaineering.

In his book, Herzog recounts all the stages of the expedition, from preparation to descent. He vividly describes the difficulties that the expedition members had to face: harsh climate, dangerous terrain, and exhausting physical exertion.
A special place in the book is given to the story of the descent from the summit. Herzog and his companion Louis Lachenal suffered frostbite, and they had to amputate their fingers on their feet and hands. However, despite this, they were able to safely descend the mountain.

This book is not only a chronicle of a historical achievement, but also an exciting story about the human spirit, friendship, and the power of will. It is a story that inspires and motivates, and that will not leave any reader indifferent.
