This large-format (230mm x 330mm) hardback book of superb colour photographs portrays the grandeur and beauty of Sagarmatha - Mount Everest - and Himalaya, compiled and written by world-famous mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary. The images include close-ups of Sherpa life, aerial views of the Everest Massif, along with birds, butterflies and brilliant sunsets. An extraordinary variety of people with close connections to Everest were invited by Sir Edmund Hillary to contribute to this book. They were asked to give photographs that portray the spirit or capture a special moment in the Khumbu that was personally important to them. Conceived as a fundraising venture by Singapore-based publisher-photographer Hans Hofer, the project was orchestrated from Kathmandu by Lisa Choegyal, with help from Himalayan expert Elizabeth Hawley and editor Wendy Brewer Lama. Photographs were donated by many writers, mountaineers and photographers, including Chris Bonington, Arne Naess, Lord John Hunt, Peter Hillary, Kurt Diemberger, Norman G Dyhrenfurth, Bruce Chatwin, John Tyson, Hamish MacInnes, Michael Dillon, B Ned Kelly, Dieter and Mary Plage, and many others.
