Summary

Here are unabridged selections from George Mallory's collected writings on his mountaineering - and his motivations. Famously impelled to climb Mount Everest simply because it was there, Mallory made three attempts to be the first to reach its summit, and perished on the third. His writing reveals the emotional life of the mountaineer. With eloquence, Mallory captures the struggles and the rewards involved, the climber's sense of triumph, and experiences of staggering beauty.

Mallory comes through as a warrior poet

the story from the first glimpses of the mountain to the final heart breaking sight of the fated team moving into clouds, this book is written and produced in a spirit so poetic and refined one has no choice but to weep for these gentlemen mountaineers. those who climb feel even closer to Mallory by the end.
