Thirteen year old Jordan Romero of the United States today became the youngest person ever to summit Mt. Everest. Photos and details are at his Web site. In his honor, I compiled a book exhibit at the library. Here are a few of the included titles.
Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer (my favorite)
View From the Summit by Sir Edmund Hillary
To the Top of Everest by Laurie Skreslet (nonfiction for children)
Everest (A Fiction Series for Kids) by Gordon Korman
The Contest (Book One)
The Climb (Book Two)
The Summit (Book Three)
