Published by The Ernest Press, 2006, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.   The perennial mystery of Mallory and Irvine on Everest receives an intriguing twist in a reconstruction of their fateful climb written virtually in Mallory’s own words. Drawn from the climber’s letters, writing and Mallory’s background as a classicist, this is a new forensic examination of the evidence and points to one firm conclusion.  This is the most detailed and convincingly thorough account so far of what happened on Mallory’s last climb on Everest. The events of what actually occurred on that final summit assault in 1924, Sir Chris Bonington has called mountaineering’s greatest mystery.   Winner of the 2006 Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature.
