Le 29 mai 1953, Edmund Hillary et Tenzing Norgay parviennent au point leplus élevé de la planète, au sommet de la plus haute montagne du monde,au troisième pôle - alors que pôle Nord et pôle Sud ont déjà étéatteints -, là où aucun homme n'a encore jamais accédé. Ce livre proposela chronique détaillée de l'exploration de l'Everest. Elaboré àl'occasion du cinquantième anniversaire de la première ascension, ilpuise sa richesse dans les collections de documents et objets de laRoyal Geographical Society, qui, dix ans plus tard, font toujours de cetouvrage une référence. Plus de 400 photographies témoignent desexpéditions de reconnaissance topographiques ou cartographiques, ainsique des tentatives d'ascension menées conjointement par la RoyalGeographical Society et l'Alpine Club à partir de 1921. Qu'il s'agissedes images les plus célèbres, comme la dernière photo de Mallory etIrvine - dont on ne sait s'ils ont rejoint le sommet avant dedisparaître -, ou de clichés inédits illustrant les découvertes despremiers explorateurs de l'Himalaya, la beauté spectaculaire du massifde l'Everest transparaît dans toute l'iconographie de ce livre. Préfacéspar Sir Edmund Hillary et par sa Sainteté le Dalaï-Lama, les textes quiaccompagnent ces documents exceptionnels sont l'oeuvre d'auteursincontournables, dirigés par Stephen Venables, alpiniste britannique derenom, journaliste et écrivain, qui a ouvert en 1988 le difficileitinéraire de la face Kangshung de l'Everest. Il cosigne notamment unchapitre avec Reinhold Messner, qui réalisa la première ascension de lamontagne sans oxygène, de même que la première en solitaire. Autantde contributions d'exception qui permettront aux lecteurs de partagerl'exaltation de la quête, le sentiment de la découverte et le bonheur durêve accompli ressentis par ces hommes qui eurent le couraged'affronter la plus haute montagne du monde
