When it was posted on the Internet in 1999, the photograph stunned the world. George Mallory’s body, frozen into the side of Mt. Everest since 1924, had been found. Jeffrey Demunn, reading David Roberts’s account of the expedition, and Michael McGlone, offering Conrad Anker’s first-person experience, deliver fine performances. Both refrain from overdramatizing the story, allowing the text to deliver its own powerful message. McGlone’s understated interpretation of Anker’s search captures the hiker’s respect and awe for Mallory and the mountain without getting mushy. Demunn’s account, a bit more animated, brings the expedition’s history to life--together Demunn and McGlone tell the story in a seamless partnership, rather than performing it.
