The Conquest of Everest: With a Chapter on the Final Assault by Sir Edmund Hillary.

E.P. Dutton & Company, New York 1954, 8vo, orig. sjirtingbind, 300 s., engelsk tekst, illustrert.

«This is the story of how, on May 29, 1953, two men, both endowed with outstanding stamina and skill, inspired by an unflinching resolve, reached the top of Everest and came back unscathed to rejoin their comrades. Yet this will not be the whole story, for the ascent of Everest was not the work of one day, nor even of those few anxious, unforgettable weeks last spring in which we prepared and climbed the mountain.»
