Read about the perilous quest to reach the summit of the tallest mountain on Earth. The Scholastic History Readers series was created especially to bring history to life for beginning readers.

This book introduces readers to Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay--the first men to reach the peak of Mount Everest. Difficult climbing conditions on Everest--rough terrain, cold temperatures, and high altitude-- are explained. Various types of climbing equipment are discussed, as well.

Reaction to the conquest of Everest came from all around the world. Hillary and Norgay both used their fame to improve conditions for the people of Nepal.
