In 1984 Five Young Men Made The First All-Australian Attempt To Climb The World's Highest Mountain. 8848metre Mt.Everest. They Climbed Alpine-style Without The Back-up Or Support Of A Large Team, Without The Aid Of Artificial Oxygen And On A Route Never Before Climbed. And They Succeeded. This Book Tells Of Avalanches That Swept Away Vital Equipment And Came Close To Burying The Climbers; It Recounts The Heartbreak Of The Decision By Some Of The Team Members Not To Go For The Summit And The Exhilarating Elation Of Success And Tempered By The Terrible Price Exacted By The Mountain From Those Who Dare To Take Up Such A Challenge. This Gives A History Of The Other Expeditions To Mt.Everest, It Details The Build-up To The Australian Attempt And It Gives A Fascinating Glimpse Of Life In Tibet In The Far West Of China Where Few Westerners Have Ever Travelled.
