Norgay knows Everest, and Touching My Fathers Soul is a must-read for anyone contemplating a summit attempt, even if exclusively from the comfort of a favorite armchair. Just because technological and meteorological advances have benefited later expeditions, newer isnt necessarily better- much wisdom can be gained from studying the mistakes and encounters of previous attempts. Anecdotes and gripping prose shine throughout, like this gem: That night--and then the following night--we lay in our tents listening to the malevolent roar of wind high on the mountain. The train was still running, the 747 endlessly trying to take off.

As a Sherpa and practicing Buddhist, Norgay flavors the book with his culture and its climbing rituals and carefully dissects the differences between the local, deep respect for their mountain--Chomolungma--and the nonnative brashness that has often led to disaster.Norgay is intent on the accomplishments and experiences of his legendary father, Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa who first reached the summit with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, and commendably shares his most private and human thoughts while retracing his fathers greatest path. As Touching My Fathers Soul acknowledges, however, no one conquers Everest.

You sneak up on it, then get down as quick as you can. --Michael Ferch
