Sir Edmund Hillary was a bee-keeper, mountaineer, war veteran, explorer, philanthropist, husband, father, and the first person to ever reach the summit of Mount Everest. By stepping where no man had before, with climbing partner Tenzing Norgay, Hillary claimed a victory for New Zealand and made a name for himself around the world. 

Writer Tom Scott draws the detailed story from his personal conversations with Hillary himself, which took place before Hillary's 2008 death. From his childhood in South Auckland, New Zealand, to the plane crash that killed his wife and daughter, Hillary portrays the life, loves, and losses of one of the most famous explorers of all time.
