The triumphal first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay ushered in a new, exciting era of mountaineering. Leader John Hunt's account of the expedition, first published in 1954, is now available in paperback. Although today Everest has been climbed and conquered by every route, technique, and means imaginable, the story of the original challenge remains one of the most inspiring in mountaineering history.
