Detailed Product Description
Seattle, 1989, 2nd USA edition. 704 pp, 70 photos, some in color, maps. Thick hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

This is THE book to buy for all details of every Everest ascent and attempt, names, dates, deaths, etc. Updated to include events through 1989. DJ, Fine.

SIGNED by Robert Mads Anderson, Apa Sherpa, Fred Beckey, Wally Berg, Barry Blanchard, Chris Bonington, Jim Bridwell, Greg Child, Nick Clinch, Kurt Diemberger, Peter Habeler, Peter Hillary, Steve House, Tomaz Humar, Layton Kor, Jeff Lowe, Reinhold Messner, Chris Pizzo, Gerry Roach, Doug Scott, Stephen Venables, Ed Webster and Jim Whittaker.
 
Beginning with the early exploration in and around the mountain, Walt Unsworth provides a detailed and fascinating account of all the attempts on the peak until its eventual first ascent, then continues with further accounts of the major milestone ascents and accomplishments that followed. A list of ascentionists (and fatalities) takes us up to 1989.
 
The wealth of information makes fascinating reading nevertheless, with Audrey Salkeld giving her encyclopeadic contribution as usual! Written in a refreshing, non-technical style, the armchair mountaineer will reap as much enjoyment from the wealth of detail and drama that unfolds, as will the modern-day climber who has an interest in the history of Chomolungma, the 'Goddess Mother of the World'.
