In 2003, the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa's historic ascent of Mount Everest, an event which became a defining moment in twentieth-century adventure and delivered fame and glory to the men who took part in Colonel John Hunt's expedition. All perhaps, except Tenzing, who, after a brief honeymoon period with the world's media and political leaders, returned to his humble home in the hill station of Darjeeling, India, and never properly received the credit and plaudits he so richly deserved. Written by Tenzing's mountaineer grandson Tashi, who himself has also conquered Everest, and his wife Judy, Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest uncovers one of the greatuntold stories of the world of mountaineering, and pays long-overdue homage to the Sherpas, without whom the summit of Everest would have remained an impossible dream for climbers the world over.
