Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a story of Everest unlike any told before, Jamling Tenzing Norgay gives us an insider's view of the Sherpa world. As Climbing Leader of the famed 1996 Everest IMAX expedition led by David Breashears, Jamling Norgay was able to follow in the footsteps of his legendary mountaineer father, Tenzing Norgay, who with Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest, in 1953. Jamling Norgay interweaves the story of his own ascent during the infamous May 1996 Mount Everest disaster with little-known stories from his father's historic climb and the spiritual life of the Sherpas, revealing a fascinating and profound world that few — even many who have made it to the top — have ever seen.

Synopsis:

This is Sherpa Tenzing's son's account of the 1996 IMAX climb to the summit of Everest that met with tragedy. It recounts the physical and mental journey he undertook as he realized his desire to stand alongside his father's soul, and demonstrates the power of the Himalayas.

Synopsis:

Shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker Award, this book is about a treacherous journey to the summit of Everest, and combines adventure with spiritual insight. Colour illus.
