Book Title: High Adventure

Author: Edmund Hillary

Book Description:

Every New Zealander looks with both fondness and pride at the accomplishments of Edmund Hillary, first man with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay to climb to the summit of Mt Everest in 1953. Hillary's inspirational account of the ascent of Everest in "High Adventure" has you right there with him as he makes the final ascent to the summit. Sir Edmund also reveals in this book his self-described, "kiwi-unique" character traits that include an intense desire to succeed, and a quiet humbleness when discussing his many successes.
