Detailed Product Description
Kansas City, 2002, 1st edition. 174 pp,  200+ vintage b/w and recent color photos. New large format hardcover with dust jacket.

SIGNED on the title page by Ed Hillary as "E. P. Hillary" *more below

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail and International Mail.

When Ed signed these copies for us, we noticed that he was signing 'E.P. Hillary' instead of his more usual 'Ed Hillary.' We asked him why, as 'E.P. Hillary' is the way he first signed books in the 1950s. He didn't really answer, but I had the feeling he was giving me, and now you, a treat. (I think somebody told him that 'E.P.' signatures were more desirable!) 

This book on Ed's life by a National Geographic writer and photographer is a wonderful personal tribute to a man who has given the Sherpa people more than anybody would have dreamed in 1953. With an afterword by Edmund Hillary.

When 33-year-old New Zealand beekeeper Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa climbing partner Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mt. Everest on May 29, 1953, they congratulated each other with a handshake and a hearty embrace. It was the beginning of a lifelong relationship between Hillary and the Sherpa people -- a people whose courage, skill, and generosity of spirit make Himalayan exploration possible. 'Sir Edmund Hillary and the People of Everest' is a story of giving back.

The book begins with a vivid recounting of the conquest of Mt. Everest and goes on to beautifully chronicle Hillary's humanitarian and environmental efforts over the last half century. His work on behalf of the Sherpas includes raising funds, building schools, setting up two hospitals, and opening 12 medical clinics. His deep love, respect, and concern for the Sherpa people is unwavering, and his commitment shines through in whatever project is at hand.

Using personal interviews and intimate photographs, photographer Anne B. Keiser and writer Cynthia Russ Ramsay paint an insightful portrait of an extraordinary man and his unmatched devotion to preserving the culture of the Sherpa people."

* Edmund Hillary as E.P. Hillary

On YouTube there is a film clip of Sir Edmund Hillary signing his name in chalk on a blackboard, and you can see him writing E.P. Hillary.  In May 20, 1962 Ed Hillary was a guest on the TV show What's My Line. It was their practice for guests to sign their name on a blackboard as they entered the stage. Start the tape at 3:30.
