"The dramatic, often amusing story of Sir Edmund Hillary's return to the Himalayas in March, 1963, to fulfill a promise -- to repay the Sherpas, a rugged Himalayan people, with schools, water systems and medical aid, for the loyal and courageous service they had rendered to many mountaineering expeditions over the years" -- and to attempt two great unclimbed peaks, Taweche and Kangtega (from the dustjacket).
