Although geared toward younger readers, Venables does a very nice job in presenting the Everest story. Starting with the Mallory and Irvine saga the book then turns to the final triumph of Hillary and Tenzing. The latter half of the book covers the Americans in 1963, Haston and Scott in 1975, Messner and Habeler in 1978, and then turns to Venables’ own remarkable achievement following his four-man teams ascent of the Kangshung Face. A pleasing book with a good use of photos.
