Higher than Everest, written by Flore Dussey, follows the extraordinary story of Tendi Sherpa, a Nepalese mountain guide who has climbed the highest peaks on the planet. He has climbed 21 summits over 8,000 metres, including 14 ascents of Everest, and has achieved his hero status by helping mountaineers in the ‘Death Zone’ (above 8,000m). The book also discusses Tendi’s love and respect for the mountains he climbs, as well as this history and culture of the Sherpa people.
The book’s foreword is written by Peter Hillary, son of Sir Edmund Hillary, who was the first person to ascend Everest almost 70 years ago, along with Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay.
