    SUMMARY ☆ Everest the Hard Way Everest the Hard WayI am an armchair adventurer I like reading about Everest and what people have to go through to get to the summit This was a very interesting read in that it happened in the 70's It's hard to imagine what they carried when I know that technology has improved the supplies for an Everest Expedition There is an appendix chapter in which members of the team write about their contribution to the expedition It was just as interesting as the chapters on the climb itself
