From Africa to Everest to South America and the Southern Patagonia Ice Cap, the enigmatic Eric Shipton's (1907-1977) adventures continue to fascinate readers. Drawing upon scores of personal interviews as well as Shipton's own correspondence, Steele draws a full-bodied portrait of the self-effacing explorer and mountaineering legend, offering new information about his public and private lives.
