No Other Marks. Binding Is Tight With Minor Wear On Cover....................... Cantwell’s interest in adventure travel has taken him and his family to all 7 continents, including a trek to the Mt. Everest base camp, a hike on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, and a search for Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat. Most recently, he hiked to the rim of a volcano on Easter Island to see the site where rapamycin was discovered. In 1984, he was elected a Fellow in the intrepid Explorers Club. When she was 14, his daughter Kelly, asked him ‘‘why can’t we take vacations like normal people, such as to the beach...?’’ In an essay, he responded: ‘‘I guess it is because I prefer expeditions over vacations, active experiences which teach me about other cultures, trips which require physical and mental preparation and which help to shrink the world so I can better appreciate what is happening in Nepal, Israel, or even Antarctica.’’

8 Heinrich Harrer; Translator-Richard Graves Seven Years in Tibet
E. P. Dutton March 1953 B00005WT9S First Edition Hardcover Collectible - Good No Jacket 
Stated 1st Edition. Previous owner's name sticker on inside front cover. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. No DJ . . . . . . . . . Published in 1953, this adventure classic recounts Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer's 1943 escape from a British internment camp in India, his daring trek across the Himalayas, and his happy sojourn in Tibet, then, as now, a remote land little visited by foreigners. Warmly welcomed, he eventually became tutor to the Dalai Lama, teenaged god-king of the theocratic nation. The author's vivid descriptions of Tibetan rites and customs capture its unique traditions before the Chinese invasion in 1950, which prompted Harrer's departure. A 1996 epilogue details the genocidal havoc wrought over the past half-century.
