The 1963 American Mount Everest Expedition, led by Norman Dyhrenfurth, placed the first Americans on the summit and made the first traverse -- up the West Ridge and down the South Col route. This new anniversary edition is a larger-format book than recent editions, features more photos than any prior edition, includes a new foreward by Jon Krakauer, a new, poignant, preface by Hornbein, and a new, final chapter with details of each of the expedition members. Selected by National Geographic Adventure as one of the 100 Best Adventure Books of All Time. This expedition was a mountaineering milestone.
