An Afterclap of Fate: Mallory on Everest

Author(s): Lind, Charles

Copyright: 2006, UK
Specifications: 1st, 8vo, pp.126, blue cloth
Condition: dj & cloth new.

The perennial mystery of Mallory and Irvine on Everest receives an intriguing twist in a reconstruction of their fateful climb written virtually in Mallory’s own words, drawn from the climber’s letters, writing, and his background as a classicist. The reader is taken in the stream of Mallory’s consciousness, into and through a vivid reliving of the detail of the climb itself, that leads into the heart and soul of Mallory himself. From his earliest childhood memory to moving recollections of the Somme – up to the realisation of the dream – the summit of Mt. Everest. A near forensic examination of the evidence points to one firm conclusion. Winner of the 2006 Boardman-Tasker Award for Mountaineering Literature.
