High Adventure

By Edmund Hillary


“Unquestionably the best account of the lot… I believe this to be one of the small number of mountaineering books certain to survive.”
JOHN MORRIS, The Observer

“A gem of a book. . . . At no point is there any deviation from the same honesty of purpose and simple love of mountaineering which brought him, with those famous ‘few more whacks, to the top.”
Times Literary Supplement

“This book will stand apart from all others… a ‘must’ for everyone stirred by the climb.”
Derby Evening Telegraph

“Easily the most exciting account of the last Everest expedition.”
Newcastle Journal

“The impact of the final chapters is overwhelming . . . it is clear that not only has Sir Edmund reached the top of the world; he is still there.”
Birmingham Post
