Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

For almost a century, Westerners have been familiar with the Sherpas as guides to mountaineering expeditions in the area around Mt. Everest. As writer/naturalist Klatzel shows in this book, however, Sherpas are far more than guides or porters. Having lived among Sherpas for large parts of the past three decades, the author has gained a profound knowledge of their culture and philosophical traditions. She shares her reflections and experiences in this striking book, along with dozens of her color photographs of Sherpa life. A revealing view into a people known about, but not really known, by Westerners, this book will appeal to many readers. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
