The mighty, inaccessible peaks of Mt. Everest have always posed an irresistible challenge to those motivated to test their mettle against the harsh conditions. Packed with spectacular archival and specially commissioned photographs, this book examines the history of Everest mountaineering through thrilling journey reports. The authors describe in detail the planning required for such a monumental climb and the technical means used in the Everest climbing adventures of modern mountaineering. The narrative recounts the various chapters in the mountaineering history of Everest, from the first reconnaissance in 1921 to the first victorious climb and the accomplishments-and failures-of recent decades. We meet the ambitious adventurers, revel in their triumphs, and experience the tragedies as well. Throughout the book the lively text and vivid photographs transport readers on a journey they will never forget.

Book Description White Star, Italy, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since it was discovered in 1852, the fascinating pyramid of rock that is Mount Everest has haunted the dreams of generations of explorers. Through thrilling photographs and detailed, engrossing text, this book recounts human defiance of this Himalayan colossus: from the expeditions of the 1920s, which provided the first blood offerings to the deity of the snows, to the attempts that brought Hillary and Tenzing to the top in 1953, to the high altitude tourism that now attracts roped parties of mountain climbers from every corner of the world.
