Description:
In this touching book, unpublished letters from the Lowe collection are brought together for the first time to describe the day-to-day moments of the historic 1953 Everest expedition. Lowe met Hillary while working in New Zealand's Southern Alps just after the war and struck up a friendship. Little did he know it would be the beginning of a journey to the highest altitudes and latitudes of the planet. In 1953 Lowe was invited to be part of the successful Everest expedition where he was an integral part in the success of the venture. As often as he could, George wrote letters home to his family but the letters were more than just news - George also wrote in case he and his friend Ed Hillary never returned to tell the tale. These rare letters now allow us to travel back in time to join his companions every step of the way: a vivid behind-the-scenes witness of a climb that would make history. In clear and elegant prose, this is a unique testimony of a superlative human achievement. As we celebrate sixty years of endeavour since this first ascent, many nations lift their eyes to the summit, and this book shares in the joy and the challenge of this remarkable mountain.
Contains a foreword by Jan Morris, TIMES correspondent on the 1953 Everest expedition, and afterword by Peter Hillary.
