A novel about one man’s extraordinary quest to climb Mt. Everest, from one writer who could bring such a towering, epic tale vividly to life.
Some people have dreams that are so magnificent that if they were to achieve them, their place in history would be guaranteed. But what if one man had such a dream… and once he’d fulfilled it, there was no proof that he had achieved his ambition?
This is the story of such man: George Mallory. He once told an American reporter that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest “because it’s there.” On his third attempt in 1924, at age thirty-seven, he was last seen six hundred feet from the top. His body was found in 1999. And it still remains a mystery whether he ever reached the summit…
Solely My Opinion
Whether George Mallory made it to the summit or not, he should be named the man who opened the way to Mt. Everest. Even though he went with a team of people, he was the leader of the pack. It is always due to the one who interferes from ground level that brought deadly consequence. If only George Finch was not stopped from joining the expedition, with his experience as a climber and knowledge in chemistry, they would both made it.
I am not into hiking what more mountaineering. To be so near the summit, or he might have even reached the summit since his wife’s photograph was not found in his wallet, he would have placed the wife’s photo on the summit, it is only right to name him as the first man who conquered Mt. Everest. It was in year 1924 where climbing gears might not be so advanced as a decade later. The surface of the peak might have some changes due to avalanche and frequent change of wind speed and wind direction. And where’s the Kodak camera?
Let’s watch what the mountain guide has to say about the day they found English mountaineer George Mallory on Mt. Everest on 1st May 1999.
