In Everest: The Challenge Younghusband gives a readable account of the various expeditions mounted the attempt to climb Mount Everest in Mount Everest in the 1920s and 1930s.

The first part of this book is a  thoroughly readable account of the British expeditions written by a man who knew the Himalayas and had been one of the major figures in the organisation of the early Everest expeditions.

In the second half of the book Younghusband writes about the Sherpas and Bhutanis of the Himalayan regions, the natural life and their flora and fauna of the Himalayas, the the religious significance of the Himalayas to Hindus and their role as place of pilgrimage.

This 2nd printing gives a special account of the 1936 Expedition, which also produced the book Everest The Unfinished Adventure by Hugh Ruttledge. Topics include the inception of the idea, the attempt, final efforts and the results, future prospects, German and British expeditions, the Himalayan peoples, unity with nature, Himalayan pilgrimage, and more.  "This book deals with Everest and the overall appeal of the Himalaya." - Jill Neate, Mountaineering Literature.
