This book brings the world's mightiest peak alive in a way no traditional book can. It contains removable documents and artefacts to allow the reader to experience the triumphs and tragedies of Everest in a way no other book can.

Readers can chart a route on an early map of Everest, hold a Tibetan prayer flag like the ones generations of mountaineers have left at Everest's summit, and examine a dossier (complete with survival tips) for commercial clients attempting to climb the mountain.

The pre-war attempts, the dangerous conditions, the recent discovery of long-lost climber George Mallory's body are featured, along with the history of the mountain, its geography, and the myths and legends which surround it.

This book will appeal to Everest enthusiasts and armchair travellers.
