Sixty years after the first ascent by Hillary and Norgay, this anniversary book celebrates the most majestic of mountains, with exclusive access to the outstanding imagery and private archives of George Lowe, a key climber and photographer on the expedition. It’s hard to believe there could be new photos to see from this expedition but this book features many unpublished photographs – and other rare materials from the Lowe collection – stunning landscapes, candid portraits and action shots of this historic expedition, bringing a fresh immediacy to the event. An impressive team of experts provide their own reflections and experiences of Everest, and write in tribute to an unsung hero, with contributions from Sir Edmund Hillary, Sir Chris Bonington, Kenton Cool, Peter Hillary, Tom Hornbein, Reinhold Messner, Colin Monteath, Jan Morris, Norbu Tenzing Norgay, Doug Scott and Stephen Venables. For all who wonder what Everest must be like, and for mountaineers, climbers, outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers, this book conveys the joy and the challenge of this incomparable mountain. This book weighs 3.25 pounds.

Winner 2013 Banff Mountain Book Festival James Monroe Thorington Award for Best Work of Mountaineering History and Finalist in the Mountain Image category.
