EVEREST: The Swiss Expedition in Photographs

Email this review


A remarkable collection of photographs which, though they record the Swiss expeditions of 1952, might well be studied in relation to both earlier and later expeditions. The photographs are grouped; East Napal, Up o the Mountain, the Khumbu Icefall, The Valley of Silence, High Up the Mountain, the Participants; each group is preceded by a diagram map, indicating the direction and location of camps, and by captions, numbered to correspond to the photographs. An introductory section describes briefly what was an important milestone to the conquest, in itself a great adventure.
