9781780973524: Everest

Charting the world's fascination with the great mountain, this photographic tribute is published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's 1953 successful conquest of Everest

Packed with stunning photography, this book chronicles the story of the mountain and those who attempted—some successfully, others with fatal consequences—the ultimate test of bravery. It starts with Everest's discovery in the 19th century and takes readers through the early expeditions, the tragic disappearance of Mallory and Irving in 1924, the euphoria of Hillary and Tenzing's successful summit in 1953, the riddle of the Abominable Snowman, the astonishing discovery of Mallory's body in 1999, right up to the most recent triumphs and tragedies. Full of beautiful images of some of the world's most breathtaking scenery, this chronicle of the majestic mountain recounts the struggle of those mountaineers willing to push their bodies to the limits of physical endurance by risking their lives in pursuit of the ultimate goal—to stand on top of the world.

Book Description Carlton Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The possibility of climbing the world s highest mountain was first aired in 1885. Although Tibet and Nepal were initially forbidden to explorers, the challenge captured the imagination of the world s mountaineers. Over the next 68 years, obstacles were overcome to allow 12 full-scale expeditions to attempt the summit. Eleven ended in failure - until on 29 May 1953, the British team achieved the seemingly impossible. The magic of Everest remains undiminished. Since 1953, many expeditions have conquered the mighty peak, but it remains one of the world s supreme challenges: its very name synonymous with the biggest, the best and the most dangerous. Packed with stunning photography and informative text, Everest will chronicle the story of the mountain and those who attempted - some successfully, others with fatal consequences - the ultimate test of bravery.
