Webster has seen Everest from all sides as a member of three very different teams. Here are his accounts of his attempt on the West Ridge Direct (1985) as part of a 20-member team, his solo ascent of Everest’s North Peak - Changtse (1986), and his participation in the audacious ascent of the Kangshung Face (1988) with a team of four. A final chapter takes an amazing look at whether Mallory and Tenzing may have crossed paths when Tenzing was just a boy. Thoroughly researched with detailed notes. This is a finalist for both the 2001 Banff Mountain Book Festival and the Boardman-Tasker Award. Ed won the 1990 AAC Literary Award for his writing achievements.
