9780062516886: Touching My Father's Soul: A Sherpa's Journey to the Top of Everest

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.

Review:

...insightful meditation on climbing, spirituality and life -- a breath-taking and inspiring view from the other side of the mountain. --David Breashears

Touching My Father's Soul rises above the bumper crop of books on Everest's tragic 1996 season. --Outside Magazine May 2001

There is much to marvel at in these page. It taught me a great deal....Enthralling to read. --Jon Krakauer

About the Author:

Norgay runs his family's travel adventure company, Tenzing Norgay Adventures, which teaches half a million climbers each year. Norgay is based in Darjeeling, India, when he is not climbing.
