Detailed Product Description
New Delhi, 2002 [1924]. 319 pp, photos, maps. New softcover.

A fresh and condensed description of first three expeditions to Everest: the assaults and ascents of 1921, 1922 and 1924. The author, Sir Francis Younghusband, was the first Chairman of the Mount Everest committee of the Royal Geographical Society. 'Younghusband was one of the major figures in the organization of early Everest expeditions.' -- Jill Neate,  Mountaineering Literature. 
 
A description of the three 1920s Everest expeditions by Francis Younghusband. Younghusband was elected President of the Royal Geographic Society in 1919, and two years later became Chairman of the Mount Everest Committee which was set up in 1921 to co-ordinate the reconnaissance of Mount Everest. He actively encouraged climbers, including George Mallory, to attempt the ascent of Mount Everest, and they followed the same initial route as the earlier Tibet Mission.
