Description

= A LIFETIME SPENT ON THE EDGE.

A memoir of extraordinary depth and brutal honesty, In the Ghost Country is the story of Peter Hillary's journey into a world of sensory deprivation. A place where thoughts and memories are projected on to the blank slate of the Antarctic snows—so real that the ghosts of lost friends and loved ones walked with Hillary in the white maelstrom. This is the story of that journey: a chronicle of profound isolation, of great stamina and skill, of the mental and emotional toll exacted by travel in extreme environments. It is also a meditation on a lifetime spent on the edge, a memory book of more than thirty expeditions in the Himalayas, the Andes, the Arctic and the Antarctic. It tells of triumphant adventures —travelling with his father, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Neil Armstrong to the North Pole, climbing Mt Everest twice—and bitter tragedies.

Author; Peter Hillary & John E. Elder. Book published by Random House, Auckland. 2004. Cardcover. 341 pages. The illustrations are black and white. The book content, text, illustrations are in very good condition.
