 "Only Two for Everest" by Lyn McKinnon
  In 1951 Guy Cotter's father Ed joined a group of young Kiwis who intended to achieve the first ascent of Mukut Parbat, a 7242m peak in the Indian Garhwal. The team included (leader) Earle Riddiford, George Lowe, Ed Hillary and Cotter with a small Sherpa team. After Cotter, Riddiford and Passang Dawa Lama summited the mountain, an invite arrived from Eric Shipton inviting two of the team to join the Everest reconnaissance. This thoughtfully written and well-researched book uncovers the events that followed that without Cotter, Riddiford and Passang Dawa Lama’s successful Mukat Parbat ascent would have changed the history of New Zealand (and possibly British) mountaineering forever.
