NOTHING VENTURE, NOTHING WIN

by Edmund Hillary


His Autobiography


The full life-story to date of one of our century's great adventurers - conqueror of Everest, Antarctic explorer, friend of the Sherpas, unique droll personality.

"Even the mediocre can have adventures and even the fearful can achieve. In a sense, fear became a friend - I hated it at the time but it added spice to the challenge and satisfaction to the conquest. I envied this who in success clung to a measure of peace and tranquillity - I was always too restless and life was a constant battle against boredom. But the compensations have been great, certainly more than I deserve. I have had the world lie beneath my clumsy boots and seen the red sun slip over the horizon after the dark Antarctic winter, I have had more than my share of excitement, beauty, laughter and friendship."
- from the author's foreword.
