KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is the human side of a great adventure, immensely readable, intensely personal in its interpretation of the famous Sherpa's mind, and revealing a way of life and a training, through thirty years, for one goal, the sealing of Everest. The author, a French journalist, has a lively sense of time and place, and no hesitation over revealing some of the tensions played down by other recorders. Half the book is devoted to the Everest expedition, most of the early part deals with Tenzing's youth; a connecting link summarizes other expeditions.
