Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An in-depth portrait of George Mallory, offering insight into the man behind the myth and the controversy.

Book News Annotation:

Investigative reporter Peter and outdoor writer Leni, husband and wife, journeyed through Tibet, retracing the steps of Mallory's 1921 Everest reconnaissance expedition. They draw also on newly discovered letters and documents, and reminiscences of his children to explore the youthful radical socialist and teacher of Robert Graves, his entanglements with the Bloomsbury set, his homosexual infatuation,. and other aspects. They reveal the true identity of Stella, the mysterious women whose letter was in his pocket when his body was found high on Everest in May 1999. No one knows whether he made it to the top in 1924.
