Softcover, 64 pages, April 2003.

This action-packed book celebrates the extraordinary life of Sir Edmund Hillary, the New Zealand farm boy who in May 1953 became the first person known to have reached the summit of Mount Everest. Roped to a Sherpa named Tenzing Norgay, the iron-willed Hillary crossed deadly icefalls, clawed his way up vertical walls, and persevered through gale-force winds until he finally reached the top of the world. Along with this gripping adventure, readers follow the explorer's route to the South Pole, his quest to find the Abominable Snowman, and his continuing efforts to help the Sherpa people, without whom, Hillary is convinced, he never would have scaled Everest. Young readers will find this book hard to put down!

Dimensions (in inches): 9-1/8 x 10-7/8.
