Everest: The Remarkable Story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Summary

Everest: The Remarkable Story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay by Alexandra Stewart

WITH A FOREWORD BY SIR RANULPH FIENNES _______________ CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL EVEREST ASCENT 1953-2023 _______________ This beautifully illustrated book tells the incredible story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first people ever to set foot on the top of Everest. Ideal for readers aged 8+ In the late morning of May 29th 1953, the sun was shining brightly on the roof of the world, a gentle breeze was blowing, and two men were there to witness it for the first time ever. Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, and the roof of the world was Everest. This is the breathtaking story of how two very different yet equally determined men battled frost-biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds and death-defying ridges to climb the world's highest mountain. Join these two unlikely heroes on the most amazing of adventures and discover the impact of hundreds of men and women who helped Hillary and Tenzing achieve their goal. But triumphs can be marred with tragedy, as not everyone who climbs Everest survives ... With a beautiful foreword by the greatest living explorer of our time, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this brilliant book combines fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart's captivating writing. This unique narrative tells the story of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made their mark on the world from birth right up to their final days and the impact they've had on Nepal today. _______________
