"In 2003, the world will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa's historic ascent of Mount Everest, an even which became a defining moment in twentieth-century adventure and delivered fame and glory to the men who took part in Colonel John Hunt's expedition.
Tenzing and the Sherpas of Everest is the inspiring story of this poor and illiterate man who left his small ancestral village in a remote part of the Himalaya and through grit, courage and sheer determination climbed the world's highest mountain and consequently became a hero around the world. But it is also a tribute to Tenzing's family and the Sherpa people who have contributed so much to exploration in the Himalaya over the last hundred years."
