"The Mount Everest Committee of the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club desire to express their thanks to Colonel Howard-Bury, Mr. Wollaston, Mr. Mallory, Major Morshead, Major Wheeler and Dr. Heron for the trouble they have taken to write so soon after their return an account of their several parts in the joint work of the Expedition. They have thereby enabled the present Expedition to start with full knowledge of the results of the reconnaissance, and the public to follow the progress of the attempt to reach the summit with full information at hand." -Preface

The height of Mt. Everest was first measured in 1850, but the closest any westerner got to Everest during the next 71 years, until 1921, was 40 miles. The Hunt for Mt. Everest tells the story of the 71-year quest to find the world's highest mountain. It's a tale of high drama, of larger-than-life characters-George Everest, Francis Younghusband, George Mallory, Lord Curzon, Edward Whymper-and a few quiet heroes: Alexander Kellas, the 13th Dalai Lama, Charles Bell. A story that traverses the Alps, the Himalayas, Nepal and Tibet, the British Empire (especially British India and the Raj), the Anglo-Russian rivalry known as The Great Game, the disastrous First Afghan War, and the phenomenal Survey of India - it is far bigger than simply the tallest mountain in the world. Encountering spies, war, political intrigues, and hundreds of mules, camels, bullocks, yaks, and two zebrules, Craig Storti uncovers the fascinating and still largely overlooked saga of all that led up to that moment in late June of 1921 when two English climbers, George Mallory and Guy Bullock, became the first westerners-and almost certainly the first human beings-to set foot on Mt. Everest and thereby claimed the last remaining major prize in the history of exploration. With 2021 bringing the 100th anniversary of that year, most Everest chronicles have dealt with the climbing history of the mountain, with all that happened after 1921. The Hunt for Mt. Everest is the seldom-told story of all that happened before.

WITHIN the pages of this book are contained the outstanding addresses given by Dr. George S. Arundale during the 1932 sessions of Wheaton Institute, Summer School and Convention of The American Theosophical Society. Discipleship, glorious and inspiring, is the golden motif which runs like a stirring song through every talk to its triumphant climax in the address, Mount Everest. This mightiest peak, towering symbol of the grandeur of the heights attainable by man’s own divinity, rightly represents the goal of our aspiration, as also the difficulties and obstacles to be surmounted on the way of ascent. It is a vivid and heroic drama which is given by Dr. Arundale with all the dynamic power so splendidly at his command, but a drama which challenges the aspirant to responsibility of leadership in the world’s thought and activity and imposes the obligation of joyous and selfless service. Great is the world’s need during the period of transition through which it is passing and Dr. Arundale makes it abundantly clear that the goal of each man’s Mount Everest may be attained only as he turns outward to his fellows in wise and strong helpfulness. There can be no greater glory than to “leave the lower self behind” in the selfless service of others, and, on entering the temple of one’s own Godhood, to find the door opening into the world of the Great Ones Who have attained Mount Everest.
