Peter Steele brings Eric Shipton to life in this biography, beginning with his farming days in Kenya and ending with the climber's strenuous last journeys in Patagonia. He also analyses the controversy which shocked the climbing world when Shipton was replaced at the last minute as leader of the 1953 British Everest expedition by John Hunt.
