Everest: Triumph and Tragedy on the World's Highest Peak by Matt Dickinson 0060188065 9780060188061
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

This interactive book brings the world's mightiest peak alive in a way no traditional book can. Readers can chart a route on an early map of Everest, hold a Tibetan prayer flag like the ones generations of mountaineers have left at Everest's summit, and examine a dossier (complete with survival tips) for commercial clients attempting to climb the mountain. The pre-war attempts, the dangerous conditions, the recent discovery of long-lost climber George Mallory's body are featured, along with the history of the mountain, its geography, and the myths and legends which surround it.
