Mount Everest 1938: Whether these mountains are climbed or not, smaller expeditions are a step in the right direction

Mount Everest 1938: Whether these mountains are climbed or not, smaller expeditions are a step in the right direction by H. W. Tilman

It's 1938, the British have thrown everything they've got at Everest but they've still not reached the summit. War in Europe seems inevitable; the Empire is shrinking. Still reeling from failure in 1936, the British are granted one more permit by the Tibetans, one more chance to climb the mountain. Only limited resources are available, so can a small team be assembled and succeed where larger teams have failed?

H.W. Tilman is the obvious choice to lead a select team made up of some of the greatest British mountaineers history has ever known, including Eric Shipton, Frank Smythe and Noel Odell...

Preview:

Circling the Sun is a novelized account of the life of Beryl Markham written by Paula McLain.
