Detailed Product Description
London, 1984, 1st UK edition. 223 pp, many photos. New hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine condition.

SIGNED by Ed Hillary.


This is the only book by this most famous of all Everest father and son teams. Includes expeditions to Everest, Lhotse, Mt Aspiring, Ama Dablam, much more. Ed Hillary and his son Peter span five decades of high-altitude climbing and five decades of aid development in Nepal. From 1953 to 1984 the changes were immense. On the climbing scene the 8,000 metre peaks were climbed by harder and harder routes, and the siege tactics of the big battalions gave way to small oxygenless alpine-style ascents, as confidence and equipment have improved beyond all bounds. While Nepal itself, the once secret country, from which Ed Hillary climbed to fame on Everest in 1953, opened its doors to tourism and embraced the trekking boom. 'Two Generations' is a frank and engaging book, written with good humour and total honesty by a father and son who do not always see eye to eye, but share a zest for adventure which they communicate unstintingly.'
