Am 27. Juni 1970 gelingt den Südtiroler Brüdern Reinhold und Günther Messner erstmals die Durchsteigung der Rupalflanke am Nanga Parbat, der mit 4500 Metern 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, 40 Jahre 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.

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.

'Everest by fair means - that is the human dimension, and that is what interests me ... In reaching for the oxygen cylinder, a climber degrades Everest ... a climber who doesn't rely on his own strength and skills, but on apparatus and drugs, deceives himself. In May 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler became the first climbers in history to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen - an event which made international headlines and permanently altered the future of mountaineering. Here Messner tells how the and Habeler accomplished the impossible - and how it felt. He describes the dangers of the Khumbu Icefield, the daunting Lhotse flank, two lonely storm-filled nights at 26,247 feet, and finally the last step to the summit. Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate is a riveting account of the exhaustion, the exhilaration and the despair of climbing into the death zone. The book also includes a history of the mountain, successful ascents and Messner's reflections on recent tragedies on Mount Everest. Reinhold Messner was the first to climb all fourteen peaks higher than 8,000 metres. The author of more than a dozen books on his adventures, he lives in a castle in northern Italy.

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.
