First published in 1955, and reissued in celebration of the 1st successful climb of Mt Everest, this is Sir Edmund Hillary's account of the achievement. He tells of the 1951 expedition, which led to the discovery of the Southern Route, the grueling Himalayan training of 1952, and the 1953 ascent itself. This edition has a new Preface by Hillary, now deceased.
