Everest: It's Not About the Summit (Paperback second edition 2018)
Everest: It’s not about the summit, is a remarkable account of a lifelong goal crushed in spectacular fashion two years running by the two worst disasters in Mount Everest’s history. In 2014 and again in 2015 Ellis Stewart from the UK was inadvertently caught up in these two disasters whilst attempting to reach the summit of the mountain. Ellis was not a seasoned mountaineer who routinely visited the Himalayas to climb. He was a pretty unlikely fellow from a non traditional climbing background who for twenty years dreamed about climbing the mountain. No body could have anticipated what would happen as Ellis tried to achieve that dream. In Everest - It's not about the summit, Ellis displays a sense of humility and compassion sharing a heartfelt and emotional journey. From the streets of northern England through to the valleys and high mountains of Nepal, the author shared his story with thousands of followers on social media, winning over the hearts and minds of many. A ground swell of support sent Ellis to achieve his dream, not once but twice. These two years on Everest would go on to define the author in ways he couldn't possibly have imagined.
