Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1981, 1st US edition. 578 pp, 72 photos, some in color, maps. Thick hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be slightly chipped, book is Fine.
 
This is THE book to buy for all details of every Everest ascent and attempt, names, dates, deaths, etc. Beginning with the early exploration in and around the mountain, Walt Unsworth provides a detailed and fascinating account of all the attempts on the peak until its eventual first ascent, then continues with further accounts of the major milestone ascents and accomplishments that followed. A list of ascentionists (and fatalities) takes us up to 1981.
 
The wealth of information makes fascinating reading nevertheless, with Audrey Salkeld giving her encyclopedic contribution as usual! Written in a refreshing, non-technical style, the armchair mountaineer will reap as much enjoyment from the wealth of detail and drama that unfolds, as will the modern-day climber who has an interest in the history of Chomolungma, the 'Goddess Mother of the World'.
