Set against the backdrop of the 1924 British Mount Everest Expedition, and historical clues from subsequent expeditions, ‘Ghosts of Everest’ brings to life the events surrounding the ill-fated Mallory/Irvine climb, while following the 1999 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition team as it retraced the route up the North Col and made a discovery that rocked the world - George Mallory's body at 27,000 feet. From early preparations to the day-by-day, blow-by-blow events of both expeditions, the narrative weaves through time bringing together past and present to create a seamless adventure narrative that captures the voices and action as it unfolded on the mountain. Meticulously researched and with new evidence and artifacts found on the mountain, this narrative sheds a revealing light on the seventy-five-year-old Mallory/Irvine mystery. Simonson summitted Everest in 1991, led the 1999 and 2001 Mallory & Irvine Research Expeditions, and has climbed all eight of the Seven Summits.
