Title An Extraordinary Life: Sir Edmund Hillary
Author Alexa Johnston
Format Paperback
RRP $ 35.00
Product Description This best-selling, fascinating biography is a fitting and revealing tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary: family man; climber; explorer; humanitarian; and, legend of the twentieth century. Biographer and family friend, Alexa Johnston, follows Hillary's intrepid footsteps around the world, from his childhood in New Zealand to his humanitarian work with the Himalayan Sherpa people, from climbing to the summit of Everest, to his tractor expedition to the South Pole, and jet boat adventures on the Ganga. Drawing on Hillary's personal archives and including a selection of photographs, it is an intimate and inspiring portrait of a revered yet modest man who lived every second of his life to the full.
