KIRKUS REVIEW

This book covers the whole range of expeditions not only in attack on Mt. Everest but also on Kangchenjunga and Manda Devi and Nanga Parbat. The successive accounts read like hairbreadth adventure yarns. There is -- all in all -- an inevitable impression of sameness to the uninitiate, but anyone interested in mountain climbing will find it a thoroughly satisfactory book, and a tribute to the brave spirit behind the challenge of successive expeditions.
