Everest & Conquest in the Himalaya

Science & courage on the world's highest mountain


This is a fascinating study of the history of Everest climbs describing in some detail the struggle to conquer the mountain and the advances in scientific knowledge that made it possible. Expeditions to the Himalaya are reviewed, in particular the famous British expeditions of the 1920's and the efforts made immediately after the end of the second world war culminating in the successful of Hillary and Tenzing in 1953 - subsequent expeditions, including the extraordinary ascent by Messner and Habelar without the use of oxygen are also studied.
