Gr 4-8-In this stunningly illustrated volume, readers learn about how Skreslet worked hard and challenged himself to achieve his dream of climbing Mount Everest. He talks about his overprotective parents and his unyielding desire for adventure, leaving home at age 17 to join the merchant marines, and his love of mountain climbing. Although he states that he had "poor balance, was afraid of heights and was clumsy," he persevered to overcome those challenges. He shows the incredible dangers of mountain climbing, and children will enthusiastically cheer him on and applaud his success. Dozens of color photographs inform readers about the equipment involved and show pictures of people, animals, and mountains in Nepal. Blue information boxes are scattered throughout the volume to serve up tidbits about "Sherpas," "The Yeti," and "Going to the Bathroom" on a snowy mountain. This exhilarating book is a great addition to the popular literature about climbing Mount Everest.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

"This exhilarating book is a great addition to the popular literature about climbing Mount Everest."
Skreslet, with Elizabeth MacLeod, has penned a dramatic, easily accessible narrative, and kids aged 10 and over who are nuts for rock-climbing, adventure tales, and sports biographies will certainly find what they are looking for in this text.
Skreslet's amiable presentation will have great appeal both for readers and browsers, who will learn much within the context of a true-life adventure.
