29 May 2013 is the sixtieth anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest. The allure of Everest remains undimmed, and the publication of this unique book celebrates this most majestic of mountains, with exclusive access to the photographic imagery and private archives of celebrated climber and photographer George Lowe, the last surviving member of that triumphant expedition. Not only the anniversary of the first ascent, 2013 sees other significant Everest anniversaries: 50 years since the first American ascent; 35 years since the first ascent without supplementary oxygen; and 25 years since the first ascent by a route up the South Buttress on the eastern Kangshung Face. An outstanding team of mountaineers and distinguished contributors associated with Everest provide their reflections and tributes, helping to create a remarkable visual and personal testimony to this historic event and to a mountain like no other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It's what's behind the myths that George Lowe's camera captures so completely, and which makes this book such a great celebration of these ambitious mountaineers and their achievement.' - Traveller
'The photographs are stunning and, in many cases, moving' - Financial Times
'This book is an incredible homage to some of the bravest of men and gives a hugely emotional and historical insight into their different journeys and the friendships that formed throughout. The photography is a true step into their world and humbles you to behold it' - Photography Monthly
