Detailed Product Description
London, 1975, 1st edition. 319 pp, b/w photos. Original hardcover with a dust jacket. Fine condition.

This is the most complete autobiography of the great man. Includes early climbs, Everest, school building. Hillary considers it his best book.

Sir Edmund Hillary was the best known and most beloved climber of our time. Here is his first autobiography, covering both his early climbs and later emergence as a world statesman.

Hillary looks back on that historic 1953 expedition to Everest, as well as his remarkable explorations in other exotic locales, from the South Pole to the Ganges. Nothing Venture Nothing Win is the compelling life story of a New Zealand country boy who daydreamed of wild adventures; the pioneering climber who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth after scaling the world's tallest peak; and the elder statesman and unlikely diplomat whose groundbreaking program of aid to Nepal continues to this day, paying his debt of worldwide fame to the Himalayan region.
