Imagine climbing Mt. Everest with no Sherpa assistance. Purposefully abstaining also from bottled oxygen, computers, and radios, while establishing an historic new route. In 1988, American climber Ed Webster's 4-man team achieved this ultimate Everest ascent, years before the Into Thin Air tragedy. Now delve into Webster's 5-Star reader-rated Everest classic, Snow in the Kingdom, illustrated by 100 pages of stunning color photographs. ( Or sneak preview "Everest The Really Hard Way" at youtube.com/watch?v=zjAHkTHn4fA )
Almost 30 years ago, in a climbing style never seen again on Everest, four partners from America, Canada, and England pioneered a super-dangerous new route (the Neverest Buttress) up the avalanche-blasted precipices of the remote, nearly forgotten Kangshung East Face of Mt. Everest in Tibet. Perhaps most remarkably, not wanting to endanger the lives of any Sherpas, the climbers carried every ounce of gear and food themselves. Only one person summited. This small team's indomitable willpower to succeed, their bravery, mutual trust, and teamwork have become legendary. But days without food plus severe frostbite were the painful prices of victory and survival.

From the Author:

"Snow in the Kingdom is at last published. After 12 years of effort, here it is ! The finest accolade that my teammates, Robert Anderson, Stephen Venables, and Paul Teare and I received came from Reinhold Messner, the world’s greatest mountaineer, who unequivocally stated that our Everest Kangshung Face climb was "the best ascent of Everest in terms and style of pure adventure." It most certainly was the adventure of our lives — and fortunately we survived! Thank you and Namaste, Ed Webster
