More than just a great read, it is also a history lesson. There are all points of view covered here, not just the struggle of the mountaineers up the mountain.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
What was accomplished in 1963 seems dated with the perspective of 2013 and numbers in the hundreds that reach the top, but Coburn does an excellent job here of explaining it all in a world context. There is a lot more here than just a bunch wanting to "bag a summit". Excellent read!
