I'm not an adventurous neither an athletic person but, I really enjoyed reading the biographies of the first two people who get to reach the peak of Chomolungma or famously known as Mt. Everest. The amazing life story of Edmund and Tenzing is not all fame and glory but they have to endure a lot just to be able to achieve their goal. Quite an inspirational read this comic book is and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to motivate them to pursue their lifelong dream. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Tenzing Norgay was the son of poor Tibetan immigrants living in Nepal. He longed to see the world but was told he could aspire to be little more than a servant. Edmund Hillary was a humble beekeeper from New Zealand, who spent his youth dreaming of adventures he could never hope to experience. And Everest was the ultimate adventure. The mountain's peak is the highest point on Earth, stretching beyond the clouds. So dangerous and challenging, Everest had never been successfully climbed and many had died trying. In 1953, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary joined a team of explorers determined to reach its top. Alone at the top of the world with their oxygen running low, they faced off against the brutal elements and new dangers at every turn. And they were armed with little more than their courage, their determination and a belief in each other. But would that be enough to achieve the impossible, what no one had done before?… (more)
