Everest brings the world's mightiest peak alive in a way no traditional book can. Readers can chart a route on an early map of Everest, hold a Tibetan prayer flag like those 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. In addition to the interactive pull-outs, Matt Dickinson also provides a complete history of the mountain including the pre-war attempts to summit Everest, the dangerous conditions, the recent discovery of long-lost climber George Mallory's body along with the mountain's geography and the myths and legends that surround it.
