Adventurers have been inspired by the achievements of Sir Edmund Hillary, the 1st man ever to set foot on the summit of Mount Everest. In a candid, wry & vastly entertaining autobiography, Hillary looks back on that 1953 landmark expedition & remarkable explorations in exotic locales from the South Pole to the Ganges.
View From The Summit is a compelling life story of a New Zealand country boy who dreamt of impossible adventures. A pioneering mountain climber who was knighted after scaling the world’s tallest peak. Decades after Hillary looked down from Everest’s 29,000 feet, it’s impact is still felt in our fascination with the perils & triumphs of climbing the deadliest mountain on Earth. The call to passion, adventure, belief is alive & real on each page of this gripping memoir. Remarkably inspiring.
