The 1921 British reconnaissance expedition to Everest paved the way for the 1922 and 1924 summit attempts with the discovery of the Rongbuk Glacier route and access to the mountain via the North Col. Almost one-third of the text is by George Leigh-Mallory describing the actual reconnaissance on the mountain. First in a long line of Everest expeditions, and books! This edition includes excerpts from Howard-Bury's 1920 diary. Anyone with a true interest in Everest should read the early books to understand what it took to first explore and come to grips with this mountain.
