DREAMS AND REALITY
BY JIM HABERL
1994 FIRST PRINTING
K2 BY THE ABRUZZI SPUR
FIRST CANADIANS TO THE SUMMIT
This is the first printing of the first edition of K2 DREAMS AND REALITY by Jim Haberl. This book was published in Vancouver by Tantalus Publishing in 1994. This is the first printing of the book. Reprints are nearly identical (not indicated on copyright page) but differ in the pink cover lettering being a lighter shade than that on the first printing. The book offered here is the first printing. The book measures 255mm tall x 204mm, and has 110 pages, map, color photos on nearly every page. Personal account of the 1993 American & Canadian K2 Expedition nominally led by Stacy Allison, a position taken merely to facilitate bureaucratic requirements. Dan Culver & the author were side-by-side first Canadians to summit K2. Tragically, Dan Culver fell to his death from the Bottleneck on the descent, and Haberl perished in an avalanche in the St Elias Range in the Spring of 1999. Good depiction of a personal experience, both the joy and the pain, of climbing the mountain.
