Touching My Father's Soul: A Sherpa's Journey to the Top of Everest : As Climbing Leader of the famed 1996 IMAX Everest Filming expedition, Jamling Tenzing Norgay was able to follow in the footsteps of his legendary father, Tenzing Norgay, who with Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 1953. Touching My Father's Soul chronicles Jamling's profound adventure, which entwines the lives of a family, a mountain, and the Sherpa people. Interweaving the dramatic story of his own ascent during the infamous 1996 Mount Everest disaster with little-known stories from his father's historic climb and an insider's view of the Sherpa's world, Jamling offers the first complete account of the Everest experience. Yet, this is also a story of personal discovery. For when he reaches the top of the mountain, we witness more than one man's triumph - we witness a son finding his family's honor - and touching his father's soul.
