James Ramsey Ullman (Author of Banner in the Sky)James Ramsey Ullman (1907–1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. Some of his writing is noted for being nationalistic, e.g., The White Tower.
The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering.
His works include Banner in the Sky (which was filmed in Switzerland as Third Man on the Mountain), and The White Tower.
He was the ghost writer for Tenzing Norgays autobiography Man of Everest (originally published as Tiger of the Snows). High Conquest was the first of nine books for J.B. Lippincott coming out in 1941 followed by The White Tower, River of The Sun, Windoms Way, and Banner in the Sky which was a 1955 Newbery Honor book. All of these titles became major motion pictures.
Ullman also authored John Harlins biography Straight Up.
He also wrote the short story Top Man, a story about mountaineers climbing K3, a mountain in India.
Beyond his mountaineering books, he wrote Where the Bong Tree Grows, an account of a year he spent traveling through some of the most remote islands of the South Pacific.
He joined the American Mount Everest Expedition 1963 as official historian. Because of health problems he had to stay in Kathmandu. The book Americans on Everest: The Official Account of the Ascent was published in 1964.
