George Leigh Mallory a Memoir by David Pye
With an Introduction by Tristram Pye
Foreword by George Mallory II
The first of several biographies of the Everest pioneer, George Mallory, whose body was dramatically recovered on the mountain 1999, this was the only biography written by a contemporary, fellow mountaineer and close personal friend. Long regarded as containing some of the finest detail of all mountaineering literature, this work, often quoted in later biographies, was published for the first and only previous time in 1927. Long out of print and previously virtually unobtainable.
