Description - To The Top by Venables Steven

Rising to 8848 metres above sea-level, Mount Everest is the highest mountain on earth. It is considered a holy place by some - it also presents one of mountaineering's greatest and most enduring challenges. The history of climbing Everest, from the earliest expeditions in the 1920s to the daring feats of today, is a chronicle of tragic failures and triumphant achievements, featuring some of the world's most celebrated climbers - George Mallory, Tenzing Norgay, Sir Edmund Hillary. "To the Top" tells their stories and creates a picture of what drives people to brave the dangers of Everest - and what it feels like to stand on top of the world.
