  • This magnificent volume celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first successful ascent of the world's highest mountain, and chronicles the history of Everest exploration from the early years of the 20th century to the present. It is the first and only book on the subject to benefit from complete access to the Royal Geographical Society's astonishingly rich collection of photographs, documents, and artifacts. Painstakingly selected from over 20,000 subjects, the 400 photographs record the surveying, planning, reconnaissance expeditions, and actual attempts that the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club jointly launched from 1921 - culminating in Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's historic climb on 29 May 1953.

    Stephen Venables

    Stephen Venables, mountaineer, writer, broadcaster and public  speaker, was the first Briton to climb Everest without  supplementary oxygen. He reached the summit alone, after climbing with a small American-Canadian team, by a new route up  the gigantic Kangshung Face.

    Everest was a thrilling highlight in a career which has taken Stephen right through the Himalaya, from Afghanistan to Tibet,  making first ascents of many previously unknown mountains. His  adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, East Africa, South Africa and of  course the European Alps, where he has climbed and skied for over forty years.
