In 1924, George Mallory and Sandy Irvine disappeared into the mists of history: Mallory's body was discovered on Everest in 1999, and Irvine's body is still believed to be there. Graham Hoyland's compelling description of what actually happened on that day answers that most intriguing of questions - did they actually climb Everest?

About the Author:

Climber, author and film director Graham Hoyland was the 15th Briton to climb Everest and during one of his nine expeditions to the mountain was responsible for the discovery of George Mallory's body. He writes for the Independent newspaper and worked as a BBC director on programmes such as Dragons' Den, the Today programme and Around the World in 80 Faiths.

From Booklist:

The tantalizing enigma in Everest annals is whether the first to reach the summitwere George Mallory and Sandy Irvine in 1924. Not solved by the discoveries of Irvine’s ax in 1933 and Mallory’s body in 1999, it could be settled if a camera the latter carried is ever discovered, a camera given Mallory by a relative of Hoyland’s. That, plus a native interest in mountaineering, inspired Hoyland’s interest in Everest and Mallory. As Hoyland chronicles his expeditions to the mountain, which he has topped, he ruminates about Mallory’s personality and motivations, referring to Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest, by Wade Davis (2011). Hoyland’s contribution to the Mallory mystery derives from his firsthand experience, obtained in the course of producing films about Everest, of the mountain face that Mallory crossed, plus a reconstruction of his clothing to test whether Mallory could have survived in it to the summit. Offering a plausible theory of events, Hoyland concludes that . . . well, tempt the adventure audience to find out by displaying this engaging title on the new-books shelf. --Gilbert Taylor
