Am 27. Juni 1970 gelingt den Südtiroler Brüdern Reinhold und Günther Messner erstmals die Durchsteigung der Rupalflanke am Nanga Parbat, der mit 4500Metern höchsten Fels- und Eiswand der Welt. Doch der Abstieg über die andere Seite ins Diamirtal endet tragisch mit Günthers Lawinentod. Auf Betreiben des Expeditionsleiters werden die wahren Umstände der Katastrophe unterschlagen. Messners eigene Darstellung der dramatischen Odyssee, eigenwillig wie ein Drehbuch geschrieben, wird verboten; er selbst wird zum Ziel jahrzehntelanger Rufmordkampagnen, den jüngeren Bruder seinem Ehrgeiz geopfert zu haben. Erst jetzt, 40Jahre danach, ist sein lange vergriffenes, bis heute hoch gehandeltes erstes Buch zum Geschehen am »nackten Berg« wieder erhältlich. Ab 14. Januar in den Kinos.

* A mountaineering classic re-released in the Legends and Lore series * Two new chapters In Free Spirit Reinhold Messner describes the forces and events that have shaped him as a climber as famous for his discipline as for his innovative spirit. Messner evolved his philosophy of the single free-climbing line with its uncompromising purity of style in the Dolomites and, as equipment and technique developed, he was in the forefront of the transference of fast lightweight alpine methods to the great ranges. Here, he takes us from the days of his first climb (at the age of five) with his father to his brother’s tragic death on Nanga Parbat in 1970 to his later move away from the overcrowded Alps and 8000-meter peaks. He sought fulfillment, instead, in new challenges in lesser known parts of the world, such as crossing the expanse of Antarctica. Free Spirit is an exciting account of the career of a mountain pioneer.

In the summer of 2012, a team of six climbers set out to attempt the first ascent of one of the great unclimbed lines of the Himalaya - the giant Mazeno Ridge on Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest mountain. At ten kilometres in length, the Mazeno is the longest route to the summit of an 8,000-metre peak. Ten expeditions had tried and failed to climb this enormous ridge. Eleven days later two of the team, Sandy Allan and Rick Allen, both in their late fifties, reached the summit. They had run out of food and water and began hallucinating wildly from the effects of altitude and exhaustion. Heavy snow conditions meant they would need another three days to descend the far side of the 'killer mountain'. 'I began to wonder whether what we were doing was humanly possible. We had climbed the Mazeno and reached the summit, but we both knew we had wasted too much energy. In among the conflicting emotions, the exhaustion and the elation, we knew our bodies could not sustain this amount of time at altitude indefinitely, especially now we had no water. The slow trickle of attrition had turned into a flood; it was simply a matter of time before our bodies stopped functioning. Which one of us would succumb first?' In Some Lost Place is Sandy Allan's epic account of an incredible feat of endurance and commitment at the very limits of survival - and the first ascent of one of the last challenges in the Himalaya.

The ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1970 marked the beginning of Reinhold Messner's remarkable career in Himalayan climbing. But this expedition has always been shrouded in controversy and mystery; his brother Gunther, who accompanied him, met his death on the mountain. In The Naked Mountain Messner gives his side of the story in full for the first time. This most personal account is a story of death and survival and for those who want to understand what is the force that drives Messner on, this book is the key. 'Nothing if not passionate, Messner writes of the Himalyan experience with a nearly mystical fervour. His description of catastrophe at high altitude is page-turning' Rock & Ice. 'A gripping piece of writing ...the translation reads like a good thriller, drawing the reader back through historical epics; treading the footsteps of climbers right on the edge of things' Scottish Mountaineer.

An engagement with the complex semantics of the terms “risk-taking” and “risk” promises to provide significant insights about important and perhaps fundamental elements of literary writing in the modern and contemporary eras. The papers from this comparative literature symposium sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) examine the history of “risk-taking” and “risk” in the contexts of literature, aesthetic poetology, and history.
