World-renowned Bainbridge Island mountaineer Ed Viesturs — a man who’s been to the top of the world’s 14 tallest peaks in his lifetime — will speak on his new book, “K2: Life and Death on the World’s Most Dangerous Mountain” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at Eagle Harbor Books.

The book delves into the history of what some call the holy grail of climbing. It examines Viesturs’ ascent in 1992 and the mountain’s six most dramatic seasons including one in which 11 climbers died trying to reach the peak.

When Viesturs first reached K2’s summit, he became the first American to climb the world’s three tallest peaks, and it was at that point, he said, that he became serious about going for all 14 of the world’s tallest points. The mountain also taught him one of the most valuable lessons he’s ever learned in climbing ­­— which he’ll talk about along with his new book and plenty of armchair adventure at Eagle Harbor.
