Detailed Product Description

Kathmandu, 2002, 1st edition. 240 pp, many color photos. Foreword by Ed Hillary. Limited to 1000 copies. At last, a book dedicated to the climbing history of the Sherpas on Everest. Gives a biography, photo, list of climbs of each Sherpa, plus a list of all Everest climbers by nationality, complete through 2002. Hardcover book, pictorial cover; no DJ was issued. As New.

SIGNED by Ang Phurba Sherpa, Ang Kami Sherpa, and Apa Sherpa, who climbed Everest 17 times! Also has a fourth undecipherable Sherpa signature.

Ang Phurba, who made a successful ascent of Everest in 1979, spent 15 years on the mountainous task of tracing the history of each Nepalese Everest summit climber. Sherpas, acclimatized to high altitudes through centuries of inhabiting the mountain regions, are internationally renowned for their climbing skills. Following short biographies of some of the leading Nepalese climbers such as Apa Sherpa, Kaji Sherpa, Ram Krishna Shrestha, Pertemba Sherpa, Babu Chhiri Sherpa, and others, there are brief pieces by Junko Tabei, Pete Athans, Chris Bonington, Eric Simonson, and others. The bulk of the book focuses on a collection of portraits and vital statistics of over 200 Nepalese Everest climbers. An extensive series of appendices round out the book, including a magnificent facsimile signature section.
