Sir Edmund Hillary Signed Book – “From The Ocean To The Sky”

First man, along with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, to climb Mount Everest, explorer, adventurer, humanitarian, national hero of New Zealand. Hardcover book “From The Ocean To The Sky” by Edmund Hillary, The Viking Press, NY, 1979, first edition, signed “Ed Hillary” on title page. Nice autographed book, presented in original dust jacket

As quoted from dust jacket flap:

“The 1500 mile trek provided as many challenges as the conquerer of Everest and his crew had imagined, from powering jet boats up treacherous rapids to the ultimate test of climbing Akash Parbat, above which, according to Hindu tradition, the lord Shiva received the celestial stream of Ganga into the matted locks of his hair. Hillary’s narrative, supplemented with excerpts from his crew’s journals and many photographs, captures the excitement and danger of the expedition…The story of Hillary’s exhilirating journey and this rare view into the heart and soul of India will prove as irresistable as the mysterious lure of Mother Ganga itself.”
