Sherpa Jamling Norgay is the son of the legendary Everest pioneer, Tenzing Norgay, who made the ascent of Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953. Now Jamling tells the dramatic story of his experience as Climbing Leader of the famed David Breashers IMAX expedition, encompassing his spiritual pilgrimage to Everest, the rich history of the Sherpa's world and relationship to the mountains of the Himalayas, and the universal story of a son's desire to walk in his father's footsteps.
Unlike other Everest narratives, Jamling's account comes from "the other side of the mountain;" that is, from the perspective of the Tibetan Sherpas, whose relationship with the mountain is sacred. Eloquently told, Touching My Father's Soul sweeps readers up in a profoundly spiritual quest as well as a thrilling adventure on the roof of the world.
