In this book, Terris Moore presents a dramatic account of man's contest with McKinley (Denali), from initial explorations on into the 1940's. With documented facts and a novelist's skills, he tackles the mysteries and controversies surrounding many of the early expeditions.

Moore is particularly qualified to write this account, for he himself participated in McKinley's third ascent. In 1951 he pioneered the first landings on McKinley's Kahiltna Glacier, and three times thereafter in Alaska set new altitude records for mountain landings.
