Detailed Product Description
2002. 48 pp, color photos. Tall hardcover with dust jacket. New.

Ages 9-12 Gr. 5-8. Author-photographer Chester is no armchair adventurer. He has a lot of experience in extreme settings, having photographed the successful climb of Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind man to conquer Mount Everest. Whether Chester is describing the effects of frostbite (and sharing a gruesome photo of his own hand as he recovers) or recounting the traditions of the Sherpas, his A-to-Z look at Everest rings with authenticity.
 
The alphabet format may seem like a gimmick, but it provides a convenient way to organize an array of fascinating facts, images, and personal stories about making the dangerous trek. The text also ventures beyond the strict feat of mountain climbing to fold in details on topics from the problem of litter on the mountain to the Buddhist ceremony performed before each climb. The book is visually striking, too; bold use of color and typography expertly complement the spectacular photos.
