The Treasure At The Top Of The World

The Treasure At The Top Of The World

In his first adventure, Freddie Malone receives an intriguing and unusual thirteenth birthday present from his Uncle Patrick. The ancient world map goes straight up on his wall, but Freddie fast discovers that the map is much more than just a decorative historic artefact.  With his best friend Connor holding the fort as best he can in the present day, Freddie is plunged into an action packed mountainous adventure, righting the wrongs inflicted on a peaceful Kingdom and it's people, all the while pursued by ruthless adversaries who’ll go to any lengths to get what they want. On his journey he rescues the weak and endangered, restores lost artefacts and uncovers clues to a century old mystery, but will their discovery be enough to provide a much sought after answer to a burning question?

The Treasure at the Top of the World is an Adventure, a Love Story and a Mystery - with Villains, Yaks and Yetis. Freddie Malone is placed in actual Historic situations and his tale is woven around real people and events.

IT IS THE 65TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST ASCENT OF EVEREST. 29TH MAY 1953. 

SHERPA TENSING NORGAY AND SIR EDMUND HILLARY REACHED THE SUMMIT AT 11.30am. 

AN ATTEMPT THE PREVIOUS DAY BY CHARLES EVANS AND TOM BOURDILLON HAD NEARLY SUCCEEDED. BUT FOR A TURN IN THE WEATHER AND FAULTY OXYGEN EQUIPMENT, THE FAMILIAR PHRASE OF 'HILLARY AND TENSING' MIGHT HAVE INSTEAD BEEN 'EVANS AND BOURDILLON'.

'THE LINE BETWEEN SUCCESS AND FAILURE IS SO SMALL IN LIFE'. THE  DRAMATIC EVENTS SURROUNDING THE SUMMITING OF THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PEAK FOR THE FIRST TIME IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TRUE THAT PHRASE IS. 

MANY HAVE BRAVELY CLIMBED IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS SINCE, AND I HAVE NOTHING BUT ADMIRATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR GOAL. I HAVE EQUAL ADMIRATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TRIED AND FAILED AND ESPECIAL ADMIRATION FOR THE BRAVE SOULS WHO DIDN'T RETURN FROM THE MOUNTAIN ALIVE. 

TO REACH THE PINNACLE IN ANY FIELD MEANS YOU PERCH ON THE SHOULDERS OF OTHERS AND YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AND STRONG AS THE PYRAMID BENEATH YOU. I SALUTE ALL THOSE WHO LOOK UP AND WONDER IF THEY CAN TEST EVERY 'NERVE AND SINEW' AND ATTEMPT SOMETHING DIFFICULT IN WHATEVER FIELD OF LIFE THEY CHOOSE.
