Without the loyalty, liveliness and endurance of the Sherpas, Sir Edmund Hillary would never have conquered Everest. In 1963 Sir Edmund returned to the Himalayas to fulfil a long-standing promise – to give these hardy mountain peoples the water, education and medical supplies which they craved. Signed by the author on a coloured rectangular strip attached to the title page.
