Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest

New or Used: 2 copies from $22.00
The year 2003 sees the 50th anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's historic ascent of Mount Everest, an event which became a defining moment in 20th-century adventure and which delivered fame and glory to the men who took part in it. All, perhaps, except Tenzing, who, after a brief honeymoon period with the world's media and political leaders, returned to his humble home in the hill station of Darjeeling, India, and never properly received the creit and plaudits he so richly deserved. He passed away in 1986. This text presents the inspiring story of this poor and illiterate man who left behind his small ancestral village in a remote part of the Himalaya and through grit, courage and sheer determination climbed the world's highest mountain and became a hero around the world. It is also the story of Tenzing's family and the Sherpa people who, over a century of adventure, have contributed so much to exploration in the Himalaya, and who maintain a respect and reverence for the mountains of the region.
