The account of Hillary’s 1998-99 attempt to walk to the South Pole, and back, with two companions. The strain of pulling 400-pound sleds across 900 miles of Antarctic wasteland, the relentless media spotlight, fatal team chemistry, and food and fuel shortages, all led to the collapse of the expedition. Hillary recounts his own physical and emotional journey, one so deep he hallucinated the ghosts of lost friends walking with him. Interspersed throughout are the tales of growing up in the Hillary household as well as the disasters on Ama Dablam, Makalu, Everest, and K2. An insightful and introspective memoir.
