Sir George Everest was the greatest surveyor in British history. In 1823, he took over as superintendent of the survey of India after his predecessor passed away, and then the earned the position of surveyor general of India seven years later. Because of Everest’s highly accurate maps of India, he received a singular honor. Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, bears his name. Who Was George Everest? Everest’s interest in surveying went back to his days at military school in England.

This is the riveting story of the first successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, of the early failed attempts that made it possible, and of the successful expeditions that followed. Led by John Hunt, the first expedition team included George Band, the author of this inspiring account. Published in association with the Mount Everest Foundation, the Alpine Club, and the Royal Geographical society, Band's account is a tribute to the courage and bravery of those who have attempted to climb the world's highest mountain.
