“Viesturs and Roberts have written an exhaustively researched and wonderfully compelling history of the most fascinating and dangerous of the Himalayan giants.” David Breashers, veteran mountaineer and documentary filmmaker, director of IMAX film Everest

“A detailed, nicely told account of a man’s endurance and perseverance in achieving a singular goal.” —Publishers Weekly
