About this title

Synopsis:

High adventure, medical science, and mountaineering become one in this splendid book, a spirited account of a recent event that was unique in American medicine and in Himalayan expeditions. For the first time, an attempt was made to climb Mount Everest for the express purpose of conducting scientific and medical research. This book recounts the story of that climb, the American Medical Research Expedition. John West captures fully the exhilaration, endurance, and dangers of the climb while conveying the nature and importance of the medical experiments.
