A new fiction book is “Paths of Glory” by Jeffrey Archer. George Mallory once told a reporter that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest “because it’s there.” On his third attempt in 1924 at the age of 37, he was last seen 600 feet from the top. His body was found in 1999. It still remains a mystery whether he ever reached the summit.
