9780060188061 This book brings the world's mightiest peak alive in a way no traditional book can. Readers can chart a route on an early map of Everest, hold a Tibetan prayer flag like the ones generations of mountaineers have left at Everest's summit, and examine a dossier (complete with survival tips) for commercial clients attempting to climb the mountain. The preâ€“war attempts, the dangerous conditions, the recent discovery of longâ€“lost climber George Mallory's body are featured, along with the history of the mountain, its geography, and the myths and legends which surround it.
