Nanda Devi: Exploration And Ascent
The wide-ranging expedition of Eric Shipton and H.W. Tilman in the Garhwal Himalaya in 1934 is regarded as the epitome of adventurous mountaineering. With their Sherpa companions they solved the problem of access to the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, crossed difficult cols, made first ascents, and explored remote, uninhabited valleys. These adventures are recounted in Shipton's wonderfully vivid Nanda Devi...

But, I think he could easily add 100 pages to each novel and spend more time building on the character development of the people in his novels and giving a little more history of areas where the books take place. Characters musings, things about the past,Scenery galore. "Kenah makes a sparkling array of similes and metaphors accessible to primary students. Bad: The banter between the characters is annoying and immature. Most of the main characters carry forward into the subsequent novels and while he gives you a brief description of the people in each book the first book does the best job in giving you an understanding of the history and character development of the players. book Nanda Devi: Exploration And Ascent Pdf Epub

I would have liked to have seen it used more fully (seeing the characters go to church, pray, receive answers to prayer etc. During one of the many air attacks the ship was struck by a bomb that destroyed her defensive missile system, but through pure chance the bomb did not explode and remained aboard wedged in the aft 'heads'. Don’t get me wrong, she’s made some bad decisions but she’s also just following her heart through all her bad and good decisions. This one is back up to five only because six is not an option.

“The dense erudition of this book took a little getting used to (written in the 30s) coming from the sensationalism of contemporary mountaineering literature. Like many books I abandoned it after a first 30pg or so try only to pick it back up, get hoo...”
one of the most inspirational mountain-travel books ever written. Once access to Nanda Devi was found, it was only a matter of time before a first ascent attempt was mounted. In 1936 Tilman joined an American and British expedition and tells the tale of their successful climb in his restrained, witty account, The Ascent of Nanda Devi.This compilation of these classic tales is concluded with further accounts by Shipton of his subsequent surveying expeditions in and around the Sanctuary, which served to mitigate his regret in missing the ascent of Nanda Devi (he was on Everest at the time.) Together, the writings of these two mountaineering legends creates a fascinating adventure tale.
