Detailed Product Description
2000, 1st UK edition. 290 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

SIGNED on the title page by Julie Summers 
and Inscribed by Bill Summers (Sandy Irvine's nephew)

Who was Sandy Irvine and why did Mallory choose him over Odell? This biography unveils the secrets of that choice, and the truths about a remarkable climber.

* Includes never-before-published letters and photographs

* Written by an Irvine's great-niece!

Mallory and Irvine. These two names have been inextricably joined since the two climbers disappeared on Mount Everest more than 75 years ago. Could they have been the first to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain 30 years earlier than Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay?

Mallory's story has been well chronicled, but Irvine has always been overshadowed by his more famous climbing partner and little has been written about him. Who was he? Why was he invited by the British Everest Committee to join the 1924 expedition despite his limited mountaineering experience? And why did Mallory, 16 years his senior, select Irvine as his partner for the final assault on the summit?

Julie Summers, great niece of Sandy Irvine, has been fascinated since childhood by the story of Uncle Sandy. In May 2000, Julie made an astonishing discovery: a long forgotten and unopened trunk containing Irvine's letters and photographs from Everest. Much more revealing than the diary that was published in 1979.

Drawing on these and other material, Julie writes a revealing story of a fearless young adventurer whose life and death linked him with one of the greatest mountaineering legends of all time.
