Edmund Hillary

A Biography

Michael Gill

Written by his friend and fellow climber Michael Gill, who had full access to his subject’s papers, this authoritative biography recounts Hillary’s wartime service in the New Zealand air force and his meticulous preparations for expeditions including the ascent of Everest. It also records his depression after his wife and daughter died in a plane crash, and his indefatigable efforts to build schools and hospitals in Nepal.
