All Day


Tenzing Norgay grew up in Nepal, dreaming of climbing Chomolungma, the mountain also known as Everest. Across the ocean in New Zealand, Edmund Hillary climbed his first mountain at sixteen. He, too, dreamed of Everest, the highest peak on the world. Years later, the two men would make history together on the famous mountain. Follow Norgay and Hillary’s awe-inspiring ascent, told in two voices by award-winning author Uma Krishnaswami, vividly illustrated by Christopher Corr, and complemented by an afterword rich in geography, history and science.
