Famous Firsts: First Men to Conquer Everest Synopsis

A gripping illustrated account of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made history by being the first men to conquer Mount Everest. For years, climbers and explorers had dreamed of being the first to reach Mount Everest's treacherous, icy summit. On 29 May 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved this amazing feat. Their lives would never be the same again. A few more whacks of the ice axe, a few very weary steps, and we were on the summit of Everest. Fully illustrated throughout, with fresh, modern artwork breathing new life into this famous story. Perfect for readers aged 8 and up.

About Ben Hubbard

Ben Hubbard began his writing career at a what's-on newspaper in the 1990s, interviewing bands, actors and artists in his native Wellington, New Zealand. He later joined the fast-paced world of daily newspaper journalism before packing up shop and moving to England. Here, Ben tied a number of new strings to his bow: magazine editor, book editor, and finally, author. Today, Ben writes a mix of non-fiction for all ages - preschoolers through to adults. He has penned titles on an eclectic subject range: from space exploration, samurai warriors and medieval castles; to pop music, pets, tornadoes and rugby skills.
