Touching My Father's Soul: A Sherpa's Sacred Jouney to the Top of Everest by Broughton Coburn

A book of adventure, wisdom and spiritual enlightenment. Touching My Father's Soul recounts Tenzing's son, Jamling Norgay's treacherous climb to the world's most forbidding summit. As retold in Krakauer's Into This Air, the 1996 IMAX climbing expedition collided with tragedy. As the climb unfolds so too does Norgay's inner journey.

Beautifully repackaged for the paperback edition, this is a classic.
