Paths of Glory
A fictionalized account of a real world mountaineer, George Mallory. From his childhood, George had a gift for mountain climbing. He became a teacher, married and had children, but his passion never wavered. He was extremely active in Britain’s mountaineering circles and had attempted to climb Mt. Everest several times by 1924. It was hard to believe that these early climbers were outfitted in hand knitted gloves and gabardine slacks as they faced -40 degree temperatures and gale force winds in their quest.
