Detailed Product Description
Hong Kong, 2003, 1st edition. 108 pp, many color photos. Small hardcover with dust jacket. New.

This is a handy pocket size book with stunning illustrations. For more than 80 years, Mount Everest has been the inhospitable and often deadly stage for human drama on a monumental scale. Of the many expeditions and solo attempts to climb the mountain, three events stand out: the mysterious disappearance of Mallory and Irvine in 1924; the first ascent in 1953 by Hillary and Tensing; and the 1996 "Into Thin Air" disaster.
 
Together, they make up the trilogy of triumph and tragedy that is explored in this book. Climbing the world's highest mountain is a high risk endeavour. The summit comes only with heavy physical, emotional (and financial) costs. Many are willing to pay those prices - and more - for a chance to stand on top of the world. Such is the powerful magnetism of Mount Everest.
