Publisher Summary

The first illustrated telling of the Everest story that equally features Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.

On the morning of May 29, 1953, the sun was shining brightly and a gentle breeze was blowing on the highest elevation of the world—and for the first time ever, people were there to witness it. Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, and they had ascended Everest. This is the breathtaking story of how these two men battled frost- biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds, and death-defying ridges to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain.

Combining fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart’s action-packed text, this unique narrative tells the complete stories of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay—from their births right up through their final days—and the lasting impact they’ve had on the world.
