    Well researched. Beautifully written. This book allows for a better understanding of those who carry and guide to their employers fron hiring thru summiting.

    The book ended too soon. I was left wanting more as the two main characters Chhiring and Pasang were poised to climb again following their harrowing experience on K2. I've read a few books on Everest and K2 and I must admit I enjoyed the Sherpa perspective, their sense of responsibility, ownership and expectation from a group of people seemingly so easily dismissed and overlooked as simply porters or guides. Chhiring's sense of obligation to his family and Pasang's deep remorse described the full range of life's emotion.

    This is an amazing and heart wrenching story. It was a little slow getting started, but then in the middle of the book I couldn't put it down! I have recommended this book to my husband, and he is picky about the books he reads. I highly recommend this book to everyone! Lana
