Published by Doubleday, London, 1999, 1st UK Edition (1st impression), D/w, Fine.   Signed by the author on the title page “Ed Hillary”.   Comprehensive autobiography of Sir Edmund Hillary (1919 – 2008), probably the best known mountaineer of his generation.  This, Hillary’s last book, looks back on the successful Everest 1953 expedition, as well as his explorations in locations from the South Pole to the Ganges. It also includes his boyhood dreams of wild adventures, his early climbs, his knighthood, and his role as elder statesman and unlikely diplomat (New Zealand’s High Commissioner in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bhutan) whose groundbreaking program of aid to Nepal, the Himalayan Trust, continues to this day.
