Everest exposed: the MEF authorised history
This is the riveting story of the first successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, of the early failed attempts that made it possible, and of the successful expeditions that followed. Led by John Hunt, the first expedition team included George Band, the author of this inspiring account. Published in association with the Mount Everest Foundation, the Alpine Club, and the Royal Geographical society, Band's account is a tribute to the courage and bravery of those who have attempted to climb the world's highest mountain.
