Detailed Product Description
London, George Allen & Unwin, 1977, 1st ed. 184 pp. b/w and color photos. Green hardcover with dust jacket. Like New condition. Actually the book is utterly New, the DJ still has that shiny glow. No internal writing, no edge wear. How do books survive for survive like this, staying utterly New, for 44 years, and then finally find there way to us, who know the book and appreciate what we have.

Tenzing was a strong climber who probably could have climbed Everest the year before he did it with Hillary. He and the Swiss Raymond Lambert reached the Everest South Summit at 26,575 feet but turned back as Lambert was unable to continue.

This is the second autobiography of the Sherpa climber who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on his 1953 expedition to the Everest summit. Born in Tibet around 1914 Tenzing had the ambition to reach the summit of Everest and was a part of 3 British expeditions in the 1930's, and on the 1952 Swiss expedition came within 1000 feet of the summit with Raymond Lambert.

By 1953 he had probably spent more time on Everest than any other human being. In this book Tenzing talks about his life and sudden celebrity after the Everest climb and his travels around the world. As field director of the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute for over 20 years he helped train many future climbers. He was married 3 times and became a resident of India with a house in Darjeeling. He had 3 sons, one of whom reached the summit of Everest in 1996. Tenzing Norgay died in 1986. The book has many illustrations of the author on his travels, in the mountains, the medals he was awarded, his family and much more.
