In 1932 Maurice Wilson was one of many who dreamed of climbing Mount Everest. But he planned to go alone, to fly to Tibet, land as high up on the mountain as he could and walk to the top. At that point he had no climbing experience and had never been in a plane, but he believed Everest was his destiny, and that his faith would guide him. He bought a second hand Gypsy Moth, booked a course of flying lessons and, defying government instructions, left London in May 1933. His amazing story is one of courage, determination, and belief.
