About this book

Official publication celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the first ascent of Everest in 1953. Published in association with the Royal Geographic Society, Alpine Club and Everest Foundation. Written by George Band, a member of the original Hunt team, who went on to climb the lower but much harder peak Kangchenjunga. Details the adventures and deaths on the north face pre World War II, and the planning after the war that was nearly curtailed by a Swiss expedition in 1952. Contains details, photographs, and material donated by team members and the RGS, much of which has remained unpublished.
