    Today is the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest. This 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. This visually spectacular book features a trove of original photographs and other rare materials from the George Lowe collection, many unpublished, complemented by classic images from the final ascent. Stunning landscapes, candid portraits, and action shots describe the day-by-day moments of the historic expedition as never before. The extraordinary journey is retold from Lowe's point of view, capturing the drama of the expedition and the personal stories of those involved. In addition, earlier attempts at climbing the world's highest mountain and key later ascents are described. The book also includes contributions from an impressive team of mountaineers and explorers.
