From Everest to the South Pole, from the top of the world to the bottom of the globe. These are words which at first sight read like the imaginative achievements of a character of fiction, but they sum up the adventures of George Lowe, the New Zealander who was condemned to spend his life as a cripple, who became a mountaineer and (by accident) one of the world's most celebrated photographers, who stood near the peak of Everest, who as one of "Bunny Fuchs's Boys" crossed from one side of the Antarctic continent to the other via the South Pole, and who has now turned his many talents to the writing of a most engaging and outspoken book of reminiscences.
