  • At 11:30 A.M. on May 29, 1953, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary stood together on the summit of Everest. High in a clear, blue day with a gentle five-knot breeze, the two men stood above and apart from the rest of the world, wrapped in a private triumph. It was a moment too perfect to last. They hugged, Hillary took the famous photos, and they gazed in awe at the world's receding curve. But as they turned to descend, they could not appreciate the tide of human clamor that awaited them. Tenzing would later say that had he known what lay below, he might have stayed on the mountain forever. No expedition reached the summit of Everest without the assistance of the legendary Sherpas. Now Tenzing Norgay and the Sherpas of Everest tells the story of Everest from the Sherpa perspective. It is a fascinating account of a proud and enigmatic culture and a man who carried the aspirations of his people to the top of the world.
