Detailed Product Description
A VERY NICE COPY OF THIS CLASSIC MAGAZINE:

Scroll down for images of the map and poster.

Articles in this magazine are as follows:

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first ascent if Mount Everest, the complete issue of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE for May 2003 was devoted to Mount Everest, and especially Tenzing and Hillary's climb 50 years earlier in 1953. There are six articles on Everest, the Sherpas, and high altitude, including one article written by Ed Hillary himself. The entire issue is present and in Fine condition.

This issue also includes a folded map and poster of Mount Everest, many color photos, etc.  This 20''x31'' is in full color and is almost always missing from loose copies of this issue of Nat Geo. Scroll down for images of the map and poster.

Everest: 50 Years and Counting. The world hasnít been the same since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stepped onto Mount Everestís snowy peak on May 29, 1953. More than a six thousand climbers have followed them to the summit. Over 300 others have perished in the attempt.

Everest 50: Everestís Greatest Hits: An illustrated history spanning 150 years of mountain milestones.

Everest 50: Altitude and the Death Zone:   Above 26,000 feet the human body starts to shut down.

Everest 50: Not Your Average Hero:  Why a beekeeper from New Zealand was the right man for the job.

Everest 50: Sir Edmund Remembers, by Sir Edmund Hillary. Which accomplishment gives him the greatest pride? Surprise: Itís not the climb.

Everest 50: The Sherpas. Itís their mountain, and ever since tourists started pouring in, itís their livelihood too.

Other articles included with this complete issue of Nat Geo Magazine. 

Mayflies (With just hours to live, these swarming insects on Hungaryís Tisza River have only one thing on their minds.)

High Stakes in the Bluegrass (Million-dollar miscarriages have Kentucky horse breeders running scared.)

Aguateca (Under enemy attack, a Maya king and his courtiers fled their city, leaving astonishing pieces of their lives behind.)

Zip USA: 48222 (Great Lakes Mail Boat J. W. Westcott II) (Mail call afloat on the Great Lakes.)
