High-tech Legs on Everest
FINALIST 2009 NZ POST CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD On 15 May 2006, double amputee Mark Inglis fulfilled a childhood ambition - to stand on the top of the highest mountain in the world. High-Tech Legs on Everest tells the stoy of how he got there, and then the equally gripping tale of how he got back down again. There are plenty of illustrations and boxed material to enliven the pages of a story that is already colourful. First published 2008.
Shortlisted for New Zealand Post Children's Book Award: Non-Fiction Award 2009 and Storylines Notable New Zealand Books: Non Fiction 2009 and LIANZA Children's Book Awards: Elsie Locke Award 2009.
