Title: No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks
By: George Mallory
Narrated by: Tim Pigott-Smith
Here are unabridged selections from George Mallory's collected writings on his mountaineering - and his motivations. Famously impelled to climb Mount Everest simply because it was there, Mallory made three attempts to be the first to reach its summit, and perished on the third. His writing reveals the emotional life of the mountaineer. With eloquence, Mallory captures the struggles and the rewards involved, the climber's sense of triumph, and experiences of staggering beauty.
