Boston/London, Little Brown, 1993, 1st edition. 208 pp, b/w and color photos. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. May have former owner's bookplate or name on FEP, else Fine. 

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

Superb Everest history. Includes a useful list of all ascents to 1992. 

* Offers an up-close-and-personal view of the world's highest mountain

* Lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs

This book is a unique climbing history of the world's highest peak, featuring major ascents and the first-person perspectives of climbers from around the world. Included are classic accounts by Edmund Hillary on the first-ever ascent; Wang Fu-chou and Chu Yin-hua on the controversial 1960 Chinese ascent; Tom Hornbein on climbing the West Ridge; and Carlos Buhler on the first ascent of the Kangshung Face. New stories include first hand accounts of the 1996 disaster; the story of the remarkable photographic self-portrait taken by Bruce Herrod, who disappeared after reaching the summit; and the discovery of George Mallory's body in 1999. Foreword by Sir Edmund Hillary.

Just as impressive as the written pieces are the book's awe-inspiring photographs showing Everest from every side and in all its moods, ranging from historic 1920's panoramas to moments of triumph on the summit.

Peter and Leni Gillman are long-time mountaineering writers, investigative reporters, and journalism teachers. They are the authors of a dozen books, including The Wildest Dream. They live in London, England.
