Told in a compelling narrative style, Mountains: Surviving on Mt. Everest follows Tempe's amazing expedition in 2001 as he and his team braved the bitter cold, thin air, and life-threatening conditions to triumphantly plant their national flag at Everest's soaring summit. As readers follow Tembe's story, they will learn the defining characteristics and features of the world's great mountains, and discover why Mt. Everest, in particular, inspires explorers. Full-color photographs, along with a map, diagram, and timeline will further inform the young adventurer in every student.
