Detailed Product Description

Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1993. 280 pp, b/w and color photos. Used paperback Fine.

The triumphal first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay ushered in a new, exciting era of mountaineering. Leader John Hunt's account of the expedition, first published in 1953, is also available in paperback. Although today Everest has been climbed and conquered by every route, technique, and means imaginable, the story of the original challenge remains one of the most inspiring in mountaineering history.

ABOUT JOHN HUNT: John Hunt was born in India, and educated at Marlborough College and at Sandhurst. After a distinguished military career in India and Europe, he led the first successful expedition to climb Mount Everest and was knighted. He also led the British party in the British-Soviet Caucasian mountaineering expedition (1958), and was involved in mountaineering expeditions in western Europe, the Middle East, Himalayas, Greenland, Russia, Greece and Poland. From its inception in 1956, he was director of the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme and was created a life peer for services to youth on his retirement in 1966. He then became chairman of the Parole Board of England and Wales (1967-1974) and the National Association of Probation Officers (1974-1980) and championed penal reform. He became a Knight of the Garter in 1979. His publications include The Ascent of Everest (1953), Red Snows, Our Everest Adventure, In Search of Adventure, and his autobiography, Life is Meeting.
