Sherpa: Stories of Life and Death from the Forgotten Guardians of Everest

Available

Description

'Tendi Sherpa had been on the summit of Everest twelve times already before 2019. He was guiding a 60-year-old American climber during one of the busiest periods the mountain had ever seen. On the face of it, his task was simple: to make sure that he and his client did not end up dead on the mountain...'

Amid all the foreign adventurers that throng to Nepal to scale the world's highest peaks there exists a small tribe of mountain people at the foothills of Himalayas. Sherpa tells their story. It's the story of endeavour and survival at the roof of the world. The story dives into their culture and tells of their existence at the edge of life and death. It traces their story pre- and post-mountaineering revolution, their evolution as climbing crusaders with never previously published stories from the most notable and incredible Sherpas of the last 50 years.

This is the story of the Sherpas.
