High Adventure, Edmund Hilary
1 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.

In undertaking his new journey through Eastern Europe, breathing in its rich history, and exquisite sights and talking to its diverse peoples, Michael fills what has been a void in his own experience and that of very many others.

As with all his bestselling books, in his uniquely entertaining style, Palin opens up a new and undiscovered world to millions of readers. Illustrated with colour photographs. TV Tie-In.

Mawson and the Ice Men of the Heroic Age: Scott; Shackleton and Amundsen, Peter Fitzsimons
5 Peter Fitzsimons Mawson and the Ice Men of the Heroic Age: Scott; Shackleton and Amundsen
William Heinemann 244870 Australia 2011 First Edition 1741666600 / 9781741666601 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good History comes to life with Peter FitzSimons in the story of Australia s most famous polar explorer and the giants from the heroic age of polar exploration- Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton. Sir Douglas Mawson, born in 1882 and knighted in 1914, remains Australia's greatest Antarctic explorer. On 2 December 1911, his Australasian Antarctic Expedition left Hobart to explore the virgin frozen coastline below Australia, 2000 miles of which had never felt the tread of a human foot. He was on his way to fulfil a national dream he had first conceived three years earlier, while on his first trip to the frozen continent on the Nimrod expedition under the leadership of the charismatic Anglo-Irishman Sir Ernest Shackleton. Even as Mawson and his men were approaching Antarctica, two other famous Antarctic explorers were already engaged in nothing less than a race to become the first men to reach the South Pole. While Roald Amundsen of Norway, with his small team, was racing with dogs along one route, England's legendary Scott of the Antarctic, with his far larger team, was relying primarily on ponies and 'man-hauling' to get there along another Dust jacket has some crinkling to bottom of spine edge. 737 pages.
