Touching My Father's Soul: A Sherpa's Journey To The Top Of Everest
Jamling Tenzing Norgay, Jon Krakauer, Dalai Lama

This newly published book is a marvelous feat. Written by the son of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, the Sherpa who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on the first ascent of Mt. Everest. By weaving together the story of his own effort with stories from his father's Everest ascent, this book brings the spirituality of the Himalayas to the forefront. While the world celebrated Hillary and Tenzing for their achievement, forty years later Jamling was inexorably drawn to attempt Everest in his own way. According to the book, both men reached their goals through remarkably similar experiences which shows, as probably few other people can, that climbing Everest is still a personal journey that is remarkably unchanged over the last 40 years even though both the culture and equipment have changed considerably.
