The Boys of Everest

No. 6307




When Edmund Hillary  and Tenzing Norgay summited Everest  in 1953, the world declared it mountaineering’s final triumph. Upon hearing the news, 18-year-old climber Chris Bonington set out to prove them wrong. Over the next 30 years, Bonington and a band of like-minded climbers reinvented the sport, seeking out the most difficult ascents and taking unimaginable risks to achieve them. Most of Bonington’s Boys, as they came to be known, died in the mountains, leaving behind a legacy of adventure, bravery and (sometimes foolhardy) determination unlike any other. Author Clint Willis interviewed the survivors and the families of those who died, and combed through journals, letters and memoirs to craft this riveting account of the men who risked everything  to conquer the world’s biggest mountains. Paperback; 536 pages.
