Detailed Product Description
2014, 1st edition. 90 pp, many color photos. Horizontal format paperback, 7'' x 5 1.2''. In English, French and German. Near Fine or Fine.

A small mostly photo celebration of Nepal's greatest feature, the highest mountains in the world. 

In this book of text and photographs, Dr Damien Francois, cultural anthropologist from Belgium, does not share just his experience and photos, but his love of the Himalayas, His passion for climbing and trekking, as well as his spiritual knowledge. He has trekked and climb on and near Everest, Manaslu, Ama Dablam and Ganesh I. 

This lovely book, by a mountaineer who has climbed some of the peaks illustrated here, and took the photos, is a joy to look at. Nicely presented in a broad format, it might serve as a travel book to rarely-visited regions of Nepal. And yet, this is also a book on culture, philosophy, and religion. 

The author is a trained academic and delves deep into the myths that live in the mountains and in the millennial Nepalese culture. The text, in English, French, and German, presents the multifaceted meanings those mountains have for the people who live there. So we have here a gift by an outsider who is both deeply knowledgeable, and profoundly respectful and appreciative of the culture born of these mountains.
