= 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.
