    This issue was fascinating and engaging on several levels. The Mystery on Everest focuses on the Mallory/Irvine attempt to summit and subsequent falls to their deaths. The story, the photography and the Mystery laid out beautifully and with a kind of “edge of your seat” recounting of what may have happened as well as the search for the body of Irvine. Equally spellbinding is account of how the National Geographic crew nailed the world’s highest weather stations to Everest outcroppings. The folded poster has the most magnificent photo of Everest I have ever seen. I wound up orderIng an extra copy for a mountain-climbing friend of mine.
