View from the Summit: The Remarkable Memoir by the First Person to Conquer Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary

THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE STORY OFAN ORDINARY MAN WHO BECAME THECENTURYS MOST IMPORTANT EXPLORERAdventurers the world over have been inspired by the achievements of Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man ever to set foot on the summit of Mount Everest. In this candid, wry, and vastly entertaining autobiography, Hillary looks back on that 1953 landmark expedition, as well as his remarkable explorations in other exotic locales, from the South Pole to the Ganges.View From The Summitis the compelling life story of a New Zealand country boy who daydreamed of wild adventures; the pioneering climber who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth after scaling the worlds tallest peak; and the elder statesman and unlikely diplomat whose groundbreaking program of aid to Nepal continues to this day, paying his debt of worldwide fame to the Himalayan region.More than four decades after Hillary looked down from Everests 29,000 feet, his impact is still felt -- in our fascination with the perils and triumphs of mountain climbing, and in todays phenomenon of extreme sports. The call to adventure is alive and real on every page of this gripping memoir.
