Sacred Mountain

By The Happy Nappy Bookseller

This book is fact filled from the first page. Beginning with the religion of Sherpas (Buddhist), gives a straight forward approach to their way of life, beliefs and customs. The photographs are wonderful. (I always thought I knew what a yak looked like. They are so much bigger). The photographs range anywhere from big, bright and bold to calm and sincere. The photographs, timelines, maps, and side facts in color give this book a lot of visual appeal. Butler gives a great overall history of Mt. Everest, including how it was formed and the challenges the first climbers faced. This is a wonderful book about the Sherpa people and Everest, their sacred mountain. —The Happy Nappy Bookseller
