Listing Detail Tabs

Signed by the author.

Son of Sir Edmund and Louise Hillary, Peter Hillary was born to a life of adventure. His tragic attempt on Ama Dablam was the climax to his year in Nepal, having earlier worked with his father and a Himalayan Trust team on a bridge and school hostel construction. This was followed by an attempt on unclimbed Kusum Kang and a monsoon jaunt with his Canadian girlfriend, Nena, in Southern India.

This story has zest, humour, romance and excitement as Peter describes his adventures with the observant eye of an enthusiastic young man. This, indeed, adds a new dimension to modern mountaineerng, with rock music among the peaks. It shows Peter Hillary to be not only an accomplished adventurer, but also an author of considerable promise.
