Summary
"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 Sherpa, 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 1996 Mount Everest disaster with little-known stories from his father's historic climb." -- Jacket
Summary
The son of the first Sherpa to climb Mount Everest recalls his father's historic achievement, introducing a local perspective on this renowned peak and the culture of the Tibetan Sherpas who live in the shadow of the mountain
