Living the High Life

Sir Edmund Hillary received a hero’s welcome in London at an hour-long signing of his books High Adventure and View from the Summit. Dozens of admirers queued in the rain for a chance to meet Sir Ed, with the earliest arriving at 5am for the 11am signing. First published in 1955, High Adventure was reissued in Britain earlier this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Hillary’s Everest conquest.
