The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation encourages children throughout New Zealand to climb hills and other sites to honor him. The government of Nepal chose to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hillary reaching Everest’s summit by making him an honorary citizen of Nepal. Who Was Edmund Hillary? Edmund Hillary was a famous philanthropist and humanitarian from New Zealand. He was the first person to ever reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Sir Edmund Hillary achieved both fame and infamy as a legendary explorer. His fame came from being the first man to ever climb to the top of Mount Everest. As with many millions of young men, Hillary would serve in the armed forces during World War II. Initially, his religious beliefs kept him out of the war. In 1943, he believed his service was truly needed and he joined the Royal New Zealand Air Force. A major injury would end his service not too long after.

On 29th May 1953, Edmund Hillary stood on top of the world. He and his climbing partner, Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, had become the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He has also helped bulld schools and roads in the Himalayas.

Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and the roof of the world was Everest. This is the breathtaking story of how two very different yet equally determined men battled frost-biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds and death-defying ridges to climb the world's highest mountain. With a beautiful foreword by the greatest living explorer of our time, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this brilliant book combines fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart's captivating writing and publishes in time to celebrate the centenary of Edmund Hillary's birth.

Profiles the life and explorations of Sir Edmund Hillary, a beekeeper from New Zealand who, along with his guide, Tenzing Norgay, were the first men to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
