Overview

Brings the famous mountaineer's amazing climb alive

Up on the world's highest mountain, the sky is tinged the black color of space and the air is almost too thin to breathe. How did Ed, a small, shy boy from a tiny New Zealand town, grow up to become the world's most famous mountaineer and adventurer? How did he climb Everest and do many other astonishing things? This exceptional picture book tells Sir Ed's story—a story of courage, skill and determination, and an inspiration to anyone who dreams of reaching the top.

Reviews
