This exciting photobiography celebrates the extraordinary life of the New Zealand farm boy who in May 1953 became the first person known to have reached the summit of Mount Everest. With climbing partner Tenzing Norgay, the iron-willed Hillary crossed deadly icefalls, clawed his way up vertical walls, and persevered through gale-force winds until he finally stood at the top of the world. Along with this gripping adventure, readers follow the explorer’s trek to the South Pole, his quest to find the Abominable Snowman, and his continuing efforts to help the Sherpa people, without whom, Hillary is convinced, he never would have scaled Everest.

This was a purchase for a report my 6th grader was doing. She found the pictures to be of help for her to visualize the journey that she had been reading and reachearing.... good value

Very happy with the quality of this purchase and the supplier.

I bought this book with the remainder on a gift card so I dont feel slighted when I realized it was geared more toward a child or preteen. It has good pictures and easy to understand writing but not for a grown up or more serious reader. I will give it away to someone whom will appreciate it more than me.

Hillary's life shows that there is more to say than "Because it's there."

In this age of celebrities, it is important to remember the true heroes. Ed Hillary's life should be celebrated for his remarkable development assistance projects in Nepal, for his advocacy of adventure (particularly outdoor adventure, whether mountaineering or surmounting the challenges in grassroots development work on behalf of friends and comrades in adventure), but also for his many volumes of self-aware, thoughtful, and entertaining adventure narrative. Brot's book is intended for youngish readers, but it is a serious, thorough, and useful study of a life worth emulating. Thanks!!
