On October 5, 1982, Laurie Skreslet became the first Canadian to reach the peak of Mount Everest. His lifelong dream of scaling the world's tallest mountain had become a reality, but it was an achievement that came with a heavy price. Laurie and his expedition faced hidden crevasses, blinding snowstorms, horrible altitude sickness and deadly avalanches that claimed the lives of team members throughout the ascent. In this exciting true-life adventure, Laurie shares intimate details from the climb itself, including the terrifying moment when he almost plunged to an icy death. A true hero, Laurie proves that with a bit of courage, a little faith and a lot of teamwork, an ordinary person can accomplish extraordinary things.

About the Author:

Elizabeth MacLeod has written many children's books, including nine titles in the Snapshots Biography series, numerous titles in the Kids Can Read, Kids Books Of and Kids Can Do It series, Why Do Horses Have Manes?, What Did Dinosaurs Eat?, and Monster Fliers. She lives in Toronto.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-8-In this stunningly illustrated volume, readers learn about how Skreslet worked hard and challenged himself to achieve his dream of climbing Mount Everest. He talks about his overprotective parents and his unyielding desire for adventure, leaving home at age 17 to join the merchant marines, and his love of mountain climbing. Although he states that he had "poor balance, was afraid of heights and was clumsy," he persevered to overcome those challenges. He shows the incredible dangers of mountain climbing, and children will enthusiastically cheer him on and applaud his success. Dozens of color photographs inform readers about the equipment involved and show pictures of people, animals, and mountains in Nepal. Blue information boxes are scattered throughout the volume to serve up tidbits about "Sherpas," "The Yeti," and "Going to the Bathroom" on a snowy mountain. This exhilarating book is a great addition to the popular literature about climbing Mount Everest.
