The BWAMM Speakers Series presents: An Evening with Maurice Isserman & Everest pioneer Tom Hornbein


Isserman’s book, Fallen Giants: A History of Himalayan Mountaineering From the Age of Empire to the Age of Extremes shares unforgettable stories of the history of the world’s highest peaks and the climbers who challenged their lofty summits. Its in-depth research gives us unique insights into previously unknown controversies, mysteries, and dramas.

Isserman will join Everest pioneer Tom Hornbein for a conversation about the history of Himalayan climbing. Hornbein made the first ascent of the West Ridge of Everest in 1963 with Willi Unsoeld.

What a totally enjoyable evening. Mr. Isserman's readings and discussion were a delight. And having Tom Hornbein present was an extra treat. The venue was perfect, even from my seat on the museum staircase. Hearing Isserman and Hornbein talk about the Himalaya with the Everest model as a backdrop made you feel you were there. Thanks to everyone who made this happen. Can't wait until the next speaker in the series.
