Detailed Product Description
London, 1969, 1st edition. 220 pp, b/w photos, appendix, index.  Original brown cloth hardcover, dust jacket, Fine condition.

SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by Michael Gill.

This copy was a gift from the author to a Bailey Howell who probably had worked on building a school or clinic with Edmund Hillary and Michael Gill. Dated January 1970.



This is an autobiography of a New Zealand-born mountaineer. Gill is a New Zealand doctor who traveled to Ama Dablam and Makalu with Hillary in 1960-61 and to Kangtega in 1963.

Quote from Ed Hillary's foreword:

'If an antarctic blizzard is trying to demolish your tent or you're camped on an uncomfortable ledge at 20,000 ft and don't know whether to go up or down . . . then Mike is a magnificent companion. He'll cook any meal, do any miserable job that needs doing, and if you feel like mental stimulation he'll argue any abstruse point you want then drop off to sleep like a baby and let the blizzard rage on.' - Ed Hillary

Neate G25: Climbing memoirs of a New Zealand doctor, physiologist and mountaineer. He was a member of some of Hillary's expeditions, climbing Ama Dablam. Taweche and Kangtega. Includes chapters on the Darran Mountains in New Zealand.
