Description

Sir Edmund Hillary embodies the qualities that New Zealanders hold dear: determination, ambition, fearlessness, and the belief that anything is possible. This is a pictorial celebration of his life and achievements. First brought to the attention of the world in 1953 when he conquered Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, he has traversed the Antarctic continent by tractor, travelled the length of the Ganges River by jetboat, and in his later years done much to help the Nepalese people by building schools and hospitals and raising much-needed funds. This collection of images reveals the scope of his achievements in some of the most exciting and challenging landscapes in the world -from the Himalayas to Antarctica - and illustrates the humanity of this extraordinary man.show more
