Everest is the world's highest mountain, towering like an icy giant over the Himalayas.

For the millions of people living nearby, it has always been a magical place, known as "Goddess Mother of the World" or the "Peak of Heaven".

To explorers and adventurers, it represents a perilous but thrilling challenge to be conquered. In this exhilarating account by award-winning author David Long, he looks back at the first attempts by international mountaineers to reach the fabled summit, many of which ended in death and disaster.
