Touching My Father's Soul

A Sherpa's Sacred Jouney to the Top of Everest




A gripping and inspirational piece of mountaineering literature, shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker award

A book of adventure, wisdom and spiritual enlightenment.

Touching My Father's Soul recounts Tenzing's son, Jamling Norgay's treacherous climb to the world's most forbidding summit. As retold in Krakauer's Into This Air, the 1996 IMAX climbing expedition collided with tragedy. As the climb unfolds so too does Norgay's inner journey. His desire to finally stand alongside his father's soul on the summit of Everest is realised, as is an understanding of his family's Sherpa history and a realisation of the power and significance of the Himalayas. Beautifully repackaged for the paperback edition, this is a classic.
