"On May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay pushed spent bodies and aching lungs past the achievable to the impossible, and stood triumphant atop the highest peak in the world. With nimble words and a straightforward style, New Zealand mountaineering legend Hillary recollects the bravery and frustration, the agony and the glory that marked his Everest odyssey."
