Summit Fever.

Not many people begin climbing with a major ascent in the Himalaya. Andrew Greig did.    In 1984, never having climbed before, he was invited to accompany a British team as a journalist on an ultimately successful ascent of the Mustagh Tower in the Himalaya. In a fresh take on climbing narrative, Greig offers a dramatic, often amusing, account of this very unusual first climb.    With candid, hilarious, and engaging insight Greig takes his readers through his preparations for the climb, the problems of adjustment, and the joys and hazards of the approach route and climb. All of these episodes are seen fresh through the eyes of a man with no experience in the climbing world, and who is looked upon with some suspicion by his seasoned teammates, whom he views quite affectionately. This tale is sure to remain high on everyone's list of mountaineering favorites.  Reviews:  Climber magazine  ... an excellent read, one of the best expedition books so far.  On The Edge magazine  ... achingly talented. A rare find.
