Detailed Product Description

London, 2003, 1st UK edition. 141 pp, b/w illustrations. New small hardcover with dust jacket.

Foreword by Doug Scott. A new anthology of comments about what the actual feeling of reaching Everest's summit was like, from many Everesters including Bonington, Messner, Mortimer, Simonson, Tabei, Tenzing, Tashi, Venables, etc.

A fascinating collection of pieces written specially for this book to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first ascent. Since the first successful ascent in 1953, many men and women have striven to reach the top of this awesome mountain, which can be at once beautiful and mystical, unpredictable and highly dangerous, apparently simple or incredibly tough.

Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original ascent, mountaineers from all round the world tell what motivated them to make their own summit bids. They highlight how it felt to reach the top of Everest and the impact it made on them, ranging from practical comments to personal spiritual reflections and philosophical statements on the future of our planet. The contributors include: Chris Bonington, Michael Groom, Bear Grylls, Peter Hillary, Alan Hinkes, Reinhold Messner, Greg Mortimer, Doug Scott, Jamling Tenzing, Eric Simonson, Junko Tabei and Stephen Venables.
