About this title
The compelling story of the greatest mystery in mountaineering, first published in 1996, has now been revised in the light of the discovery of Mallory's body on Everest. In 1924 Mallory and Irvine set off from camp, bound for the summit. But they were never seen alive again. Did they conquer the mountain? How did they die?About the Author:
Tom Holzel graduated in Economics at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. In 1986 he organised and took part in an expedition to the north side of Mount Everest to search for new evidence of what became of Mallory and Irvine. He has invented and patented a new kind of oxygen 'rebreathing' apparatus for extended use at high altitude. He is the author on numerous articles for Summit, Mountain and American Alpine Journal. Audrey Salkeld has the most comprehensive archive in Britain on mountaineering. She has translated from the German books by Reinhold Messner and Kurt Diemberger and has written the scripts for a number of television documentaries, including Leo Dickinson's Eiger and David Breashear's film The Mystery of Mallory and Irvine, for which she took part in Holzel's 1986 expedition and climbed to the North Col on Everest. She contributes regularly to mountaineering journals and is the author of a highly praised book on her Himalayan travels in Mustang and Tibet, People in High Places.
