Celebrated in his time as 'the rarest spirit of his generation', George Mallory vanished on the 8th of June 1924 in a third desperate attempt to climb Everest. Seventy-five years later his body was discovered at 27,000 feet. Mallory's courage and skill as a mountaineer, his immense charm and commitment to literature, the arts and the social and political issues of the day secured a place for him in the pantheon of Great British Heroes of the twentieth century. His life and tragic death continue to fascinate. David Robertson's biography was acclaimed on first publication. This new edition carries a foreword by Joe Simpson.
