October 1960: Avalanche!
This photo appeared in a hyperbolic account of an ibex hunt taken in the mountains of Pakistan in the late '50s. Author Count S. Krasicki is already injured and hungry when his party is struck by an avalanche, which strips the clothes from his guide, and they get stuck on the mountainside for days. Eventually he shoots this buck for the meat rather than the horns. The caption on this photo reads: "I could summon up no elation when I was photographed with my ibex, for I was completely exhausted and racked by pain.". Field & Stream Online Editors
