The Lost City of Z: A Legendary British Explorer's Deadly Quest to Uncover The Secrets of the Amazon, David Grann
1 David Grann The Lost City of Z: A Legendary British Explorer's Deadly Quest to Uncover The Secrets of the Amazon
Pocket Books 233136 Great Britain 2010 1847394434 / 9781847394439 Softcover Very Good Condition The story of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, the inspiration behind Conan Doyle's The Lost World Fawcett was among the last of a legendary breed of British explorers. For years he explored the Amazon and came to believe that its jungle concealed a large, complex civilization, like El Dorado. Obsessed with its discovery, he christened it the City of Z. In 1925, Fawcett headed into the wilderness with his son Jack, vowing to make history. They vanished without a trace. For the next eighty years, hordes of explorers plunged into the jungle, trying to find evidence of Fawcett's party or Z. Some died from disease and starvation; others simply disappeared. In this spellbinding true tale of lethal obsession, David Grann retraces the footsteps of Fawcett and his followers as he unravels one of the greatest mysteries of exploration 337 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Exploration; Exploration; ISBN/EAN: 9781847394439. Inventory No: 233136. Paperback

High Adventure, Edmund Hilary
2 Edmund Hilary High Adventure
Readers Book Club 230284 London Hardcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches] Everest: forbidding, exhilarating, unconquerable. All courageous attempts by man to reach its summit by heading up the northern side from Tibet had failed. The southern approach through Nepal had never before been climbed, due to its impossibly steep ice-covered slopes and the country's policies. But in 1951 Edmund Hillary joined an expedition to find a new route up Everest from the south, which led to a new chapter in mountaineering history. The climbers' determination, endurance and battle against the elements culminated with their famous climb in 1953 as they finally reached the summit of this formidable mountain. This is Hillary's own account of the treacherous and breathtaking journeys. 256 pages. Illustrator: A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches]. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest, Judi & Tashi Tenzing
3 Judi & Tashi Tenzing Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest
HarperCollins 233528 Australia 2001 0732267250 / 9780732267254 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition In 2003, the world will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's historic ascent of Mount Everest, an event which became a defining moment in twentieth-century adventure and which delivered fame and glory to the men who took part in it. All, perhaps, except Tenzing, who, after a brief honeymoon period with the world's media and political leaders, returned to his humble home in the hill station of Darjeeling, India and never properly received the credit and plaudits he so richly deserved. In 1986 he passed away, having touched the hearts of all those he came across and having done so much for his people. Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest is the inspiring story of this poor and illiterate man who left his small ancestral village in a remote part of the Himalaya and through grit, courage and sheer determination climbed the world's highest mountain and became a hero around the world. But it is also the story of Tenzing's family and the Sherpa people who over a century of adventure, have contributed so much to exploration in the Himalaya but who maintain a respect and reverence for the mountains. 211 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Exploration; Exploration; Biography. Inscribed by Author. ISBN: 0732267250.
