Detectives on Everest

Detectives on Everest
The 2001 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition
by Jochen Hemmleb & Eric R. Simonson

Not the best book on Everest that I've read but still pretty good...a lot unfamiliar (to me) history regarding George Mallory and Sandy Irvine. There is also a lot of history of the expeditions between Mallory and the successful summit in 1953 by Hillary & Norgay. And some interesting stories of Chinese expeditions on the Tibetan side.
