Sandy Wollaston was an explorer, undertaking expeditions to New Guinea, the Sahara, and Africa. In 1921, he was a member of the British expedition to make the first reconnaissance of Everest. Written seventy years after his father was murdered, Wollaston has produced a sensitive memoir that provides insight to the life of the middle class adventurer at the turn of the last century, and an alternative perspective on what motivated the first generation of Himalayan pioneers, particularly those on the 1921 expedition. Shortlisted for the 2003 Boardman-Tasker Award.
