Detailed Product Description
Multiple copies available.

New Delhi, 1978, revised edition, or 1986 reprint. 186 pp, 118 color photos, maps, figures. (Also one copy of the 1971 1st edition, with 116 pp.) The author collected facts and figures on the life of the Nepalese and the Sherpas in particular in a mountaineering pilgrimage on Everest. Information includes Lama rites, transmigration of the soul, and the sacred respect for animals along with Sherpa society, villages and domestic life. [Yakushi F11.] Original red cloth hardcover, dust jacket, Near Fine or Fine.
 
Despite the New Delhi publisher, the actual book was printed in Italy by the same printing company that did the European editions, so the paper, printing and color photos are of the same high quality as the UK or USA editions.

This book is large and heavy; extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.
