Everest charts the world's fascination with the great mountain, from its discovery in the nineteenth century through the early expeditions, the tragic disappearance of Mallory and Irving in 1924, the euphoria of Hillary and Tenzing's successful summit which was announced on Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation Day in 1953, the riddle of the Abominable Snowman and the astonishing discovery of Mallory's body in 1999, right up to the most recent triumphs and tragedies.

Running Everest tells the story of a group of adventurers from around the globe who embark on a remarkable journey through the Khumbu Valley of Nepal, battling altitude sickness, deplorable sanitary conditions, freezing temperatures...and enjoying every minute of it! When they reach their destination, Mount Everest Base Camp, they turn around and run a marathon, the highest marathon in the world, back to civilization. Are they extremists? Or the new generation of ordinary people? Written with humor and passion, Running Everest explores the culture, inhabitants, and delicate balance of Hinduism and Buddhism in the breathtaking Himalayas, topped off with an exhilarating race over glacial moraines, high-altitude plateaus, and steep rocky climbs, all in the shadow of the highest mountain on earth. Holly Zimmermann, the first international woman to reach the finish line of the 2018 Mount Everest Marathon, recalls her incredible Himalayan journey. Fans of her first book, Ultramarathon Mom, will be thrilled to be reunited with some familiar characters in this next narrative, including her running accomplice, Beatrice, a Zurich-based fashion-blogger who is equally tough in running shoes as in high heels, and Kyaron, a young Nepalese environmentalist. This book is for everyone: runners, trekkers, mountain lovers, Everest fans, and anyone who adores a good story. But be warned, after reading Running Everest, a part of you may long for adventure!

In April 2012 Mark Horrell travelled to Tibet hoping to become, if not the first person to climb Mount Everest, at least the first Karl Pilkington lookalike to do so. He joined a mountaineering expedition which included an Australian sexagenarian, two Brits whose idea of hydration meant a box of red wine, and a New Zealander who enjoyed reminding his teammates of the perils of altitude sickness and the number of ways they might die on summit day. The media often write about Mount Everest deaths and how easy the world’s highest mountain has become to climb, but how accurately does this reflect reality? The Chomolungma Diaries is a true story of ordinary people climbing Mount Everest with a commercial expedition, and preparing for the biggest day of their lives. Imagine your life clipped into a narrow line of cord five miles above the earth, on the world’s most terrifying ridge walk. This book will bring you just a little bit closer to that experience.
