George Mallory tried to climb Mount Everest three times, dying on his final attempt. Whether he reached the summit before he died—which would have made him the first human known to do so—remains a mystery. But Mallory's larger-than-life personality and spirit of adventure captured the imagination of his generation. With duo-tone photographs, compelling text, and quotes from Mallory, this book paints a vivid picture of the explorer. From Mallory's youthful romping in the Welsh foothills to his incredible perseverance in attacking the world's highest mountain, young readers follow the exploits of this dashing adventurer who possessed equal drive and charm.

National Geographic's award-winning Photobiographies series provides middle-grade readers with pictorially based biographies of famous pioneers in their fields.
