This is an auction for EDMUND HILLARY: THE LIFE OF A LEGEND by Pat Booth.

"When the 20th century lists its achievers, the name of Sir Edmund Hillary will be among them, ranked with the greatest adventurers of this and many other centuries . . . Through his unfailing support and nurturing of the Sherpa population, building schools and hospitals repaying not only his own debt but also those of other humans to other communities, he set an example of caring to the world . . . He is, in the very meaning of the words, a man of the world. A career built upon courage and challenge, the outpourings of the spirit which took him literally where no one had been before, has become a lifetime of compassion for mankind, its environment and the animal forms with which it share this planet . . . Forty years after those moments shared by a shy Sherpa and a young beekeeper handpicked by fate to be the trailblazers, the time is right to celebrate a great life. EDMUND HILLARY: THE LIFE OF A LEGEND is a celebration of 40 years of Sir Edmund Hillary's life since the ascent of Everest. It is a thoughtful reappraisal of a life spent pushing human ability to its limits and relishing the challenges thrown down by the elements, also of a man devoted to helping the people of Nepal. A story also of a man the world has taken to its heart."
