From the dream of an eight-year-old boy to the amazing achievement of a twenty-three-year-old man, The Kid Who Climbed Everest is the inspiring account from Bear Grylls. Many know him as the host of the television series Man vs Wild, drinking pee and eating bugs (or worse!) to survive in remote wildness areas, but back on May 26, 1998, he was the youngest Briton to successfully climb Mount Everest. His journey to reach the summit of the mountain, known as the “goddess the sky” or Sagarmatha, in Nepali, is meticulously detailed from his attempts to raise the funds necessary to embark on this adventure to the momentous day, after a harrowing 3 months, when he reached the peak in the early dawn hours. The Kid Who Climbed Everest is an engaging read that gives one a new perspective on who Bear Grylls is and what it takes to conquer the highest mountain in the world.
