Detailed Product Description



New York, 1986, 1st US edition. 223 pp, color photos. Hardcover without dust jacket. Fine condition.

SIGNED by Ed Hillary on the title page. 

This is the US edition of Two Generations, the only book by this most famous of all Everest father and son teams. Includes expeditions to Everest, Lhotse, Mt Aspiring, Ama Dablam and 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 meter 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 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. "Ascent" is a frank and engaging book, written with good humor 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.
