On 29 May 1953 Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stood on the summit of Everest: it was the first ascent of the mountain. Published in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of that achievement, this volume presents the astonishing photographs taken by George Lowe, one of Hillary’s climbing team in 1953 and an experienced photographer. The book contains over 160 photographs, of Everest and other peaks, along with written contributions from fellow climbers and a foreword by Hillary, written in 2007.
