George Mallory, thirty-seven, was Britains finest climber. Sandy Irvine was a twenty-two-year-old Oxford scholar with little previous mountaineering experience. Neither of them returned.Drawing on more than a decade of prodigious research, bestselling author and explorer Wade Davis vividly re-creates the heroic efforts of Mallory and his fellow climbers, setting their significant achievements in sweeping historical context: from Britains nineteen-century imperial ambitions to the war that shaped Mallorys generation. Theirs was a country broken, and the Everest expeditions emerged as a powerful symbol of national redemption and hope.

In Daviss rich exploration, he creates a timeless portrait of these remarkable men and their extraordinary times.
