Product description

Book Description

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the first successful summiting of Mount Everest, Himalaya brings together an esteemed selection of award-winning writers and respected climbers, including Stewart Weaver, Stephen Venables, Mick Conefrey, Peter Gillman and Doug Scott, to produce a compelling, accessible and comprehensive survey of the Himalaya in all its aspects.

About the Author

Himalaya is edited by writer and historian Philip Parker. Formerly publisher of the Times books list, Philip was responsible for The Times History of the World and numerous titles on ancient civilizations. He is also the author of The Empire Stops Here (2009), a book acclaimed as 'engaging' (FT), 'awe-inspiring' (The Scotsman) and 'a quite breathtaking and eccentric edifice of scholarship... extraordinary' (The Guardian).
