Summary
The first man to set foot on the summit of Everest, the man who led a team of tractors to the South Pole, the man who jetboated up th Ganges from the ocean to the sky has, for the first time, gathered all the remarkable adventures of a long life into one volume. But there is more to Edmund Hillary than this. He is also the man who repaid his debt to the Himalayas b inaugurating a programme of building schools, clinics, airstrips and bridges in Nepal. With his still active support, these have gone from strenth to strength in the fifty years since he himself mastered the Hillary Step and led his companion Tenzing Norgay up Everest's final summit ridge. -- back cover.
