On 29 May 1953 Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay conquered the world's highest mountain. This new edition of a book first published in 2003 chronicles the history of Everest exploration from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Drawing on the Royal Geographical Society's rich archive, it includes more than 400 photographs, many never published before, that capture the grandeur and peril of the mighty mountain. With a foreword by Hillary and an introduction by the Dalai Lama.
