Detailed Product Description
London, 1965, 1st UK edition. 199 pp, 24 b/w plates, pictorial end papers. Blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

The account of Hillary's 1960 expedition to Makalu where he experimented with the effects of high altitude climbing without oxygen. Mulgrew, who accompanied Hillary (and whose widow ended up marrying Hillary), recounts the expedition with humor and without self-pity although he suffered tremendously of frostbite, and had to be brought back down before reaching the summit. He also tells of the amusing aim of the expedition in attempting to capture a live yeti! An account of the 1960 Makalu expedition under the leadership of Ed Hillary. Mulgrew also crossed Antarctica with Hillary, and died on the Air New Zealand plane crash on Mount Erebus in Antarctica. 

Peter Mulgrew. Hillary's long time friend died on the Air New Zealand Flight 901 (TE901). This was a scheduled Antarctic sightseeing flight from Auckland International Airport. The Antarctic sightseeing flights were operated with McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 aircraft and began in February 1977, with this being the 14th flight. On 28 November 1979 the flight crashed in Antarctica, killing all 237 passengers and 20 crew members aboard. Sir Edmund Hillary had been scheduled to act as the guide for the fatal flight, but cancelled due to other commitments. In his place long-time friend and climbing companion, Peter Mulgrew, stood in as guide.

Fifteen years earlier in 1964 'No Place for Men' was published. Mulgrew shared his account of Hillary's 1960 expedition to Makalu where he experimented with the effects of high altitude climbing without oxygen.
