About the Author:

Mark MacKenzie studied journalism at the London College of Printing. In the UK, his work has appeared in The Times and the Guardian and he is a former feature writer for the Independent on Sunday. He lives in London with his wife and two children. This is his first book.

Review:

'Faced with a plethora of material, Mark MacKenzie rose to the challenge triumphantly, marrying impeccable research to a sensitive feel for the extraordinary range of emotions experienced by those who challenge this extraordinary range. If the film is half as good, Oscars beckon' * Independent on Sunday * 'Impressive book ... MacKenzie deals with the issue deftly' * TLS * 'Good solid stuff ... [MacKenzie] has done a terrific job in conveying the misery, danger and exhilaration of life on the world's tallest mountain ... a superb yarn of high adventure' * BBC Focus Magazine *
