Description: Jamling Tenzing Norgay tells a story unlike any other account of Everest -- a profound adventure that entwines the lives of a family, a mountain, and the Sherpa people. As Climbing Leader of the famed David Breashears IMAX expedition, Norgay was able to follow in the footsteps of his legendary mountaineer father, Tenzing Norgay -- who with Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest. For Jamling, climbing the mountain that the Tibetan Sherpas call Chomolungma was part of his heritage and his destiny. While Jamling's father was the first and most famous climber in the family, a total of 12 relatives have successfully made it to the summit. For the Norgays, and their Tibetan Buddhist tradition, climbing this mountain and living in its shadow is about living with the mountain, not fighting against it.

Norgay interweaves the story of his own dramatic climb with little-known stories from his father's historic ascent, allowing us to see what has changed in the 50 years since this mountain has been climbed -- and what has not. Co-author Broughton Coburn brings this exhilarating narrative to life with the same superlative writing that made Everest: Mountain Without Mercy a bestseller.

Norgay shows us a world that few -- even many who have made it to the top -- have ever seen. At the top of Everest, he finds more than personal triumph; he finds family honor and his father's soul.
