To the Top of Everest (Kids Can Do It) by Laurie Skreslet, Elizabeth MacLeod

On October 5, 1982, Laurie Skreslet became the first Canadian to reach the peak of Mount Everest. His lifelong dream of scaling the worlds tallest mountain had become a reality, but it was an achievement that came with a heavy price. Laurie and his expedition faced hidden crevasses, blinding snowstorms, horrible altitude sickness and deadly avalanches that claimed the lives of team members throughout the ascent. In this exciting true-life adventure, Laurie shares intimate details from the climb itself, including the terrifying moment when he almost plunged to an icy death. A true hero, Laurie proves that with a bit of courage, a little faith and a lot of teamwork, an ordinary person can accomplish extraordinary things.
