Everest 1922 The Epic Story of the First Attempt on the World’s Highest Mountain
The dramatic story of the first attempt on the world’s highest mountain. Based on in depth research and diaries, documents and letters it reveals the inside story of the epic expedition to the world’s highest mountain.
Packed full of derring-do, heart-in-mouth adventure and larger-than-life characters, Conefrey’s pacey, gripping account of the first attempt to scale Everest in 1922 makes for breathlessly exciting reading.
The 1922 expedition was perhaps the most exciting of all Everest ventures. One hundred years ago virtually nothing was known about the effects of extreme altitude and those brave pioneers were making it up as they went along, pushing the boundaries of human possibility. With his usual forensic analysis and keen eye for the previously untold anecdote, Mick Conefrey re-illuminates one of the greatest mountain adventures of all time.
