--It is far and away the best book on Everest.' Charles Warren, Everest 1935, '36, '38.

'This is a masterly achievement˝a splendid work by a most percipient and able writer.' John Hunt, Everest 1953.

'Everest was a subject I thought I knew something about until reading this truly remarkable new book.' Jeremy Bernstein, The New Yorker.

After John Hunt's successful 1953 expedition he wrote in his diary that at least the Everest story was finished. In fact, it had scarcely begun. The first ascent was the end of a chapter but far from the end of the story. Since those days, well over 300 men and women have stood on the summit of the world's highest mountain, some of them several times, seeking new routes, faster times, or simply to be numbered among the elite who have stood on the roof of the world.

This complete history, updated through spring 1989, tells the truth about many of the world's mountaineering heroes, about the incompetence, the pettiness, and rages, as well as the courage, skill, and altruism that have gone into attempts to climb the mountain. By giving the heroes a human dimension, the author has succeeded in making their achievements even more impressive than before. With extensive appendices, radically revised and updated, this is a book no lover of mountain adventure can be without.
