Ed was not only a great adventurer, he was the most loyal friend you could ever hope for.
– Dr Jim Wilson, a jet boat driver on the 1977 Ganges trip
Dad always said that this was the best, the most memorable expedition of them all, this journey from ocean to sky.
– Peter Hillary
For my father and I though, the journey would be deeply personal — for the turbulence of the rapids we faced would be nothing to the losses of my mother and sister.
– Peter Hillary, on taking on the 1977 Ganges expedition with his father, two years after his mother and sister died in a plane crash in Nepal
Age and the contemplation of mortality has added insight, context and wisdom to this reexamination of the great adventure the expedition became ... this recounting of what was endured and achieved is all the richer —and often moving — for being allowed to mature for a few decades.
– Writer Graeme Tuckett, in a four star review of the film, Stuff, 29 October 2019
