            In the late morning of May 29th 1953, the sun was shining brightly on the roof of the world, a gentle breeze was blowing and two men were there to witness it for the first time ever... Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and the roof of the world was Everest. This ...is the breathtaking story of how two very different yet equally determined men battled frost-biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds and death-defying ridges to reach the top of the world's highest mountain. Join these two unlikely heroes on the most amazing of adventures. This is the retelling of the true stories of their childhoods and the events that led up to their climb towards triumph. Find out how the friendship of a small town beekeeper and former yak-herder turned them into two global heroes, as well as the impact of hundreds of men and women that helped them achieve their goal. But triumphs can be marred with tragedy as not everyone who climbs Everest survives ... With a beautiful introduction by the greatest living explorer of our time, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this brilliant book combines fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart's captivating writing. This unique narrative tells the story of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made their mark on the world from birth right up to their final days and the impact they've had on Nepal today.
