"Tenzing Norgay and the Sherpas of Everest is both about my Sherpa people and for them. It is about those great old Sherpa climbers of the early days of Everest exploration who held no dreams of glory or summit success, but who climbed bravely and selflessly for decades to help others in their own quests. It is for the young Sherpas who today wear the laurels of Everest success as easily as any foreign climber. . . . It is written to remove the veil of anonymity they have worn for most of the last hundred years."--Tashi Tenzing
