Everest

By Sangma Francis
Illustrated by Lisk Feng

It is the highest spot on planet Earth, known to many as the roof of the world and the ultimate challenge for mountain-climbing adventurers. Welcome to Mount Everest.

Mount Everest is undoubtedly the most famous mountain on Earth. Hundreds of people clamber to its summit every year, following in Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s footsteps, hoping to experience Earth’s highest peak. But there is so much more to this mountain than the people who climb it. Travel back to its ancient origins, learn about the flowers and plants that grow upon its great flanks... Discover the rich history of religions, myths, and legends that surround this great Sagarmatha, the Goddess of the Sky.

  • A unique perspective on Mount Everest, looking at all aspects from the cultural and religious to the environmental.
  • Broad cross-market appeal for those interested in geography, cultural history, and beautifully illustrated non-fiction.
  • Lisk Feng is a widely-praised, award-winning illustrator.
