Prestiage of Everest.
By: Alyssa Turner
Have you ever thought about climbing Mt. Everest? Well, Sir Edman Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first people who did. The simarities and differances of "View from the Summit" by Sir Edman Hillary and the "The Dream comes True" by Tenzing Norgay are similiar about the events to the top of Mt. Everest, but they're also different in their backgrounds and emotions.
They are similiar because they both made it to the top of Everest at 11:30 am. A example is Hillary said, "At 11:30 am May 29th they reached the top." Tenzing also said the same thing. They're also similiar because they both had flags at the top of the summit. A example would be Hillary took a picture of Tenzing with the flags at the top. Another example is Tenzing held the United Nation flag the highest under British, Nepals, and Indians below his picture. Finially, they're similiar in the hard challenge they took on before the summit. A example is that Hillary said, "The ice cornice would be a challenge." A second example would be Tenzing said, "The last chalenge was a struggle."
The two stories are different in their backgrounds. Examples of this is Hillary was a famous climber from Britain while, Norgay was a local guide from Nepal. They were also different in their styles of writing. Hillary wrote more about facts. Fro example 15-27'C. Thenzings has more emotional opinions. Finally, they were also different on how they performed the prestiage of Everest. A example is Hillary said, "I didn't need Tenzings help." Although, Tenzing said "Hillary did need my help."
Those are only just a few similarities they had in their climb to the top of Mt. Everest. They're similiar in the time they reched the top, the flags, and the challenge before the summit. They're different in their backgrounds, styles of writing, and how they performed. Do you still think you would want to climb Mt. Everest or not?
