Quote from Ed Hillary's foreword:
'If an antarctic blizzard is trying to demolish your tent or you're camped on an uncomfortable ledge at 20,000 ft and don't know whether to go up or down . . . then Mike is a magnificent companion. He'll cook any meal, do any miserable job that needs doing, and if you feel like mental stimulation he'll argue any abstruse point you want then drop off to sleep like a baby and let the blizzard rage on.' - Ed Hillary

[Neate G25: Climbing memoirs of a New Zealand doctor, physiologist and mountaineer. He was a member of some of Hillary's expeditions, climbing Ama Dablam. Taweche and Kangtega. Includes chapters on the Darran Mountains in New Zealand].
