"What personal reactions stir a man who stands on top of the world ...?  Here is an intensely stirring story of a life, of a purpose, of a MAN.  Here is what the awesome void of the Himalayan heights, the spadework of the preparations, the companionship of the camps, the countless earlier climbs in far different conditions felt like to a quiet-spoken New Zealander who did what men had died in vain to do through the years.
From Sir Edmund Hillary himself comes this perfect complement to Sir John Hunt's epic, The Ascent of Everest, which was the Club's selection for May 1955."
