Описание: The first successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa teammate, Tenzing Norgay, is a familiar saga, but less well known are the tales of many other adventurers who also tested their skills and courage against the world`s highest and most dangerous mountains. In this lively and generously illustrated book, historians Maurice Isserman and Stewart Weaver present the first comprehensive history of Himalayan mountaineering in fifty years. They offer detailed, original accounts of the most significant climbs since the 1890s, and compellingly evoke the social and cultural worlds that gave rise to those expeditions.
