  • This is a book full of anecdotes about the Dickinson family's experience in Nepal, starting in 1969. There are chapters about settling in, family life, working in Shanta Bhawan Hospital and the hippies and travellers of the 60s and 70s, The 'children' tell what it was like for them to be brought up in Nepal and going to school in Nepal and India, and Angela recounts various adventures travelling between Kathmandu and the school in the mountains of North India.
    There are many stories about the British Gurkhas, Sir Edmund Hillary and other mountaineers and a non- technical description of research and prevention in connection with Mountain Sickness.  

    The book has accounts of the problems of building and running the new Patan Hospital, involvement in the first Medical School in the country and efforts to stem the advance of HIV and AIDS in Nepal. It does not neglect trekking, sports and recreation.

    Nepal itself is central, with descriptions of its people, its turbulent history, its politics and its development in the last 45 years.  A chapter explores some of the differences in world view of Hindus and Buddhists on the one hand and Christians on the other.
