Description:
These gripping accounts of adventure and danger will mesmerizer readers from cover to cover.

Stunning illustrations and compelling text provide an up-close look at six famous ascents of the world' s highest mountain.

Detailed chapters cover the enduring mystery of George Mallory' s death on Everest; Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay' s triumphant first steps on the summit; the Chinese team' s scaling of the mountain from Tibet; Reinhold Messner' s two monumental climbs (one without supplemental oxygen, the other solo); the 1983 American summit via the treacherous East Face; and the heartbreaking 1996 tragedy that claimed the lives of eight climbers during a lethal storm.

Sidebars provide a wealth of additional information--from Everest' s unique geography to the effects of altitude, to the Sherpa culture--while extensive backmatter includes a chronology, glossary, an Everest records chart, Everest " Hall of Fame" profiles, and other reference materials for climbing aficionados.
