  • This book explains the mystery of the Yeti or Abominable Snowman, the creature that has left mysterious footprints in Himalayan snows. The book also explores why people are so fascinated with the possibility that a wild hominoid might still reclusively live (the idea of a wild humanity alive in people's hopes). Here also is the extraordinary story of one man's conservation impact-a quest for mysterious animal caused him to lead in creating two massive national parks around Mount Everest, one in China/Tibet and one in Nepal.

    • Personal expedition of the author in discovering the yeti footprints were made by a bear

    • The author has been instrumental in setting up a conservation site for the protection of the bear

    • Rare photographs of yeti footprints
