This is a photographic record of Leo Dickinson and his intrepid team of Australian and British pioneers who spent years preparing to gaze down on the summit of the highest mountain in the world. For the sake of a stupendous flight lasting less than an hour, this unlikely collection of rugged individuals fought, co-operated, quarrelled, laughed and occasionally cried. As well as this entertaining account of an historic "first", they brought back an entirely new view of an awesome Himalayan peak.
