Alan Hinkes’ account of how he became the first Briton to climb all fourteen of the 8,000-metre peaks was the big seller of late 2013, despite being published some eight years after his final summit. Its appeal rests more perhaps in its photographs, which are well reproduced and printed, than its somewhat dry account, but is a testament to Hinkes’ enduring popularity.
