Detailed Product Description
UK, Pegasus or Allen & Unwin, 2022, 1st edition. 352 pp. New Hardcover.

The dramatic and inspiring account of the very first attempt to climb Mount Everest, published to coincide with the centenary of the expedition of 1922.

This first attempt on Everest in 1922 by George Leigh Mallory and a British team is an extraordinary story full of controversy, drama, and incident, populated by a set of larger-than-life characters straight out of an adventure novel. George Finch and Geoffrey Bruce, nephew of expedition leader Charles Bruce, reached an amazing height of 8320 meters, only 530m from the top. 

The expedition ended in tragedy when, on their third bid for the top, Mallory's party was hit by an avalanche that left seven Sherpas dead. Using diaries, letters, and unpublished accounts, Mick Conefrey creates a rich, character-driven narrative that explores the motivations and private dramas of the key individuals detailing their backroom politics and bitter rivalries who masterminded this epic adventure.
