Verso la metà degli anni Sessanta, al culmine della stagione di successi e di mitiche scalate che già lo hanno fatto entrare nella leggenda dell'alpinismo, Walter Bonatti da inizio a un nuovo capitolo della propria vita: si dedica a quel concatenarsi di avventurose esplorazioni che lo portano nelle regioni più remote e affascinanti del pianeta, a diretto contatto con una natura grandiosa e primordiale. Ne escono questi resoconti assolutamente memorabili che si pongono ben oltre gli orizzonti tradizionali del racconto di viaggio. Quello che Bonatti sa far emergere in questo libro, è la pratica concreta - fatta di gesti antichi, di ascolto degli istinti più remoti - della ritrovata armonia tra l'uomo e ogni battito di vita presente sulla vecchia Terra.

This volume, the sixth of the series, represents the natural counterpart of the previous volume, Ultra structure of the Digestive Tract. Unlike the latter, however, whose contents fell entirely within the domains of gastroenterology, Ultrastructure of the Extraparietal Glands of the Digestive Tract encom passes a few cognate sciences, such as hepatology, pancreatology, and even oral biology, which are usually dealt with separately. This allows, starting from cell biology, embryology, and comparative anatomy, a comprehensive survey of organs that have much in common both structurally and functionally. The chapters of this book have been compiled by well-known experts in the field with the aim not only of reviewing and pointing out the state of the art of the subject covered, but also of giving directions for future work. Furthermore, through the integration of electron microscopy with immunocytochemistry, autoradiography, freeze fracture, maceration, enzymatic digestion, etc., and by providing superb illus trative material, the authors substantiate the pivotal role played by modern morphology in under standing human physiology and pathology. In fact, it must be stressed, that a consistent part of the tissues studied here are from human origin. We believe that this volume should be read, not only by scientists and teachers active in the field, but also by a larger audience of students and professionals interested in knowing the scientific foundations of biomedicine.

CLICK HERE to download the first chapter from Psychovertical Psychovertical is the story of what happens to a nice lower-class kid with dyslexia who gains control over his circumstances by clinging to giant stone faces, thousands of feet in the air, for days at a time. In this case, Kirkpatrick uses his 12-day solo climb of the Reticent Wall on California's El Capitan as the experience that helps him understand how growing up poor and struggling with dyslexia and low self-confidence set him on a path of extreme adventure. Kirkpatrick's writing is gripping and highly entertaining -- even non-climbers will enjoy his raw intensity, gallows humor, and honest, self-deprecating storytelling style. This book is a Boardman-Tasker Prize winner, which is recognition given for outstanding mountaineering literature. From the judges' remarks: “The book is very cleverly structured....The cuts from scene to scene and climb to climb work wonderfully well -- a sort of mountaineering Day of The Jackal -- as Kirkpatrick comes closer and closer to his nemesis on Reticent Wall. And it is this climb, the running narrative of the book, that grips the most: 14 pitches of aid climbing, unrelieved by conversation with a partner other than himself, should by rights be boring. But it grips the heart further and further.”

Oggi le montagne d’Italia e del mondo – le Dolomiti e il Monte Bianco, l’Everest e il K2, il Kilimanjaro e il Gran Sasso – sono soprattutto spazi di divertimento e avventura. Ma i sentieri, le pareti di roccia e di ghiaccio, le piste da sci e le vette sono solo una parte del quadro. Per millenni, in ogni angolo della terra, le montagne sono state territori di duro lavoro quotidiano, fonte di paura e luoghi eletti a culto, scenario di sfide che hanno messo alla prova le umane possibilità, oltre che teatro di guerra. Le 101 storie di montagna raccontate in questo libro si muovono tra passato e presente, tra straordinarie cime e prodigiose imprese, esplorando una natura impervia e narrando la vita di popoli diversi. Accanto a Reinhold Messner, Walter Bonatti, Gustav Thoeni e i campioni dell’arrampicata moderna, c’è spazio per Dino Buzzati e per Ernest Hemingway, per papa Celestino V e per Ötzi, la mummia dell’Età del Bronzo ritrovata sul confine tra l’Alto Adige e il Tirolo. E non bisogna dimenticare l’orso, l’aquila, il lupo e naturalmente lo Yeti, perché i veri signori delle alte quote sono loro!Stefano Arditonato a Roma nel 1954, alle montagne d’Italia e del mondo ha dedicato libri, guide, documentari e servizi apparsi su quotidiani e riviste. Escursionista, alpinista e viaggiatore, frequenta con la stessa passione il Gran Sasso, il Monte Bianco e le valli del Nepal.

A rediscovered mountaineering classic and the extraordinary true story of a daring escape up Mount Kenya by three prisoners of war. When the clouds covering Mount Kenya part one morning to reveal its towering peaks for the first time, prisoner of war Felice Benuzzi is transfixed. The tedium of camp life is broken by the beginnings of a sudden idea - an outrageous, dangerous, brilliant idea. There are not many people who would break out of a P.O.W. camp, trek for days across perilous terrain before climbing the north face of Mount Kenya with improvised equipment, meagre rations, and with a picture of the mountain on a tin of beef among their more accurate guides. There are probably fewer still who would break back in to the camp on their return. But this is the remarkable story of three such men. No Picnic on Mount Kenya is a powerful testament to the human spirit of revolt and adventure in even the darkest of places. "The history of mountaineering can hardly present a parallel to this mad but thrilling escapade" - Saturday Review "A most extraordinary prisoner-of-war and escape story" - New Yorker "A mad venture and a gallant tribute to man's deep yearning for freedom" - Kirkus Reviews "The book crackles with the same dry humour as its title. It contains the prison-yard bartering and candlelight stitching that mark a classic jailbreak yarn; the encounters with wild beasts in Mount Kenya's forest belt are as gripping, and the descriptions of sparkling glaciers as awe-inspiring, as any passage in the great exploration diaries of the early 20th century" - The Economist
