Ascent: Two Lives Explored

Ascent: Two Lives Explored

by Edmund Hillary, Peter Hillary

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Mountaineering adventures and achievements are emphasized in these autobiographies of father and son, rather than activities disclosing the private person. This is most noticeable in the son's portions of the book; Sir Edmund reveals more of himself, especially in the pages on the loss of his wife and younger daughter in a plane crash. Published in England as Two Generations (1984), both life stories end with Peter Hillary's attempt on Lhotse in 1981. A secondary attraction for the reader, aside from the glamour of Himalayan activities, is the different ways father and son see incidents experienced together. Paula M. Strain, M.L.S., Rockville, Md.
