Kingdoms of Experience
Greig, Andrew. Kingdoms of Experience: Everest, The Unclimbed Ridge. London: Century Hutchinson Ltd, 1986.
"In March 1985, Mal Duff led a new expedition to conquer Everest by the unclimbed North-East ridge. The last attempt by a Chris Bonington team had ended in failure and the tragic deaths of two great climbers, Joe Tasker and Pete Boardman.
Everyone knew the risks, as well as the excitement of the challenge. And here Andrew Greig chronicles not only the assault on the peak, but examines the complex interrelationships of nineteen very different individuals living together, yet alone." -from the dust jacket
