Edmund Hillary was a beekeeper from a small town in New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay a former yak‐herder from Nepal. Both men were very different yet equally determined!

In the book Everest, join these two friends as they battle frost‐biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds and death‐defying ridges to reach the top of the world’s highest mountainMount Everest.

In this retelling of the true story, learn all about their childhoods, the perilous expedition that made them into global heroes, as well as the impact of hundreds of men and women that helped them achieve their goal. But triumphs can be marred with tragedy as not everyone who climbs Everest survives…

This brilliant book combines Alexandra Stewart’s captivating writing with amazing illustrations by Joe Todd‐Stanton. There is also a beautiful introduction by the greatest living explorer of our time, Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

This unique narrative tells the story of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made their mark on the world from birth right up to their final days, and the enduring impact they’ve had on Nepal to this day.
