I read this book prior to reading The Wildest Dream by Peter and Leni Gillman. I purchased this mostly for the large photos, after reading Jeffrey Archer's Paths of Glory, but the photos are poorly reproduced and there are more and better photos in the biography by the Gillman's (The Wildest Dream), and much better writing.

A fascinating look at one man's passion and achievement. The technical aspects of mountaineering were in their infancy in the 1920's and George Mallory was on the cutting edge. A great read for grades 5-9, and adults too.

The book Mystery on Everest is about renowned English mountain climber George Mallory and his disappearance during his three attempts at climbing the world's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. His one reason to try for Everest was "Because Its There". To this day, nothing is known of him if he made it to the summit or not after his third attempt. This photo biography tells the tale of his life in childhood, during the war, his family, and his hobby, mountain climbing. Educated at Cambridge, Mallory was always adventurous, but it wasn't until later on in life that he found his new love in the English hills, mountain climbing. He soon married his first wife and started a family. During World War One, he manned howitzers that pounded German positions behind enemy lines. After the war, he went back to his family. His desire for mountain climbing drew him to join expeditions to Everest in 1921, 1922, and 1924. A team of mountain climbers found Mallory's body in 1999, opening up a vast stockpile of questions that have not been able to be answered since his death. Did Mallory reach the summit 29 years before Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary ?
