While Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay may get all the credit for their first ascent to Mount Everest 60 years ago, they wouldn’t have done it without the help of other equally-important people. After all, who would be there to take the photographs of the two brave climbers after their conquest? That honor belonged to George Lowe, who recently passed away. But before he moved on to that mountain in the sky, a collection of his letters to his family and friends will be released in the form of this book. George Lowe’s passing signals an end of an era, but celebrating their achievement in 1953 through this book means their legacy lives on. $TBA.
