Great New Book by Wade Davis on the Conquest of Everest

by Chris Murray on December 14, 2011

Just published this week is Wade Davis’ epic book Into The Silence: The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest. Both a history book and a great adventure story, Into the Silence is sure to be enjoyed as a classic account of the British attempts to scale Mount Everest in the 1920’s. I was fortunate to get an autographed copy from Wade at a book release celebration at Andrew and Leslie Cockburn’s home. It was a lively and exciting evening.

Govinda Gallery hosted The Lost Amazon, the first exhibition of Wade Davis’ teacher and mentor Richard Evans Schultes’ photographs, in 2006. It was also a great pleasure for me to photo-edit the book of the same title and contribute the afterword, published by Chronicle Books with Wade Davis as co-author. The exhibition also went to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Parque Explora in Medellin, Colombia.
