One of his most memorable boyhood experiences was his first introduction to the Everest adventure (through Noels The Story of Everest) at the age of sixteen. And one of his most genuine adult sorrows is that that adventure is to this day, among Americans at least, so little known. Virtually everyone has at least a nodding acquaintance with Peary, Scott, Amundsen, Byrd, and many of the other great explorers of modern times- but of the Everesters, the men who in expedition after expedition, year after year, have done grim and gallant battle with the summit of the world, no one seems to know anything at all. This book tells the story of those brave men.
