About this title

Synopsis:

Trace extraordinary journeys to the top of the highest mountain on Earth including the tragic attemp by Mallory and Irvine in 1924. Meet the team that finally took Hillary and Tenzing to the summit of Everest in 1953. Understand the fascination of Everest and why it continues to challenge mountaineers today pushing them to the limits of human endurance.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-These series titles employ the familiar format of double-page chapters accompanied by numerous annotated illustrations, fact boxes, photographs, drawings, and maps. Alexander tracks the campaign of the king to conquer the world. Life in the Macedonian Empire, the battles in Asia Minor and the Persian Empire, and the attempt to conquer India are included. Everest chronicles the history of mountaineering and man's fascination with the world's highest peak. A few of the most famous expeditions are discussed and a great deal of information on climbing techniques and equipment is given. The up-to-date material includes mention of the discovery of the body of George Mallory in 1999. The high-quality color photographs and drawings make each page eye-catching and interesting. Each book also contains a double gatefold with a panoramic view. These colorful volumes are packed with information that would be useful for reports.
