In the children's book - Everest: A Climb for Peace, there are many incredible and beautiful images. All of them are actual photos or stills from our history-making climb and film. A special effect was used in Photoshop to make each image look like a watercolor painting. Really cool, huh!
Below are two images and text from two pages. The book has 32 gorgeous full-color images.
Text from page 7: "Base camp and all the higher camps have beautiful scenery, but they can be very cold. Snow can fall at any time and sometimes it can be so windy that tents can be blown over and destroyed! It is not easy climbing Mt. Everest."
Text from page 8: "The team settles in and spends several days building camp, relaxing, and getting to know each other better. At first it is not easy being in such small tents with strangers.
Ali is from Palestine and David and Micha are from Israel. Their countries have been at war for many years. Each feels that their country is in the right and the other is at fault. This leads to several discussions about their nations, their people, and their beliefs.
Sometimes they argue. One time they even yell at each other. Some of their teammates think that the expedition might fall apart. People are worried that like their countries they will also start to fight."
