Father and son, Sir Edmund and Peter Hillary are adventurers, explorers, extraordinary athletes and rugged individualists. They join in telling their stories of three decades of high-altitude climbing and the deep love of the growing concern for a rapidly developing world of vanishing wilderness. This is a frank and engaging book, written with humor and total honesty by a father and son who do not always see eye to eye, but share the love of adventure as they discover the world on their own terms and live far outside the realm of conventional.
