"This is the first book I've seen that helps readers know more about Sherpa climbers by offering details regarding their work, families, personal messages and contact information. As I have learned by traveling around the world for my own adventures, many people already have good thoughts about Sherpas. This is the type of book that can lead to connections between people, and that is good." - Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita National Geographic People's Choice Adventurer of the Year, 2016

"Pasang Tshering's novel effort to document the achievements of Sherpa mountaineers who are otherwise lost or forgotten, serves as a platform to recognize and celebrate their skills and success." - Dr. Pasang Yangjee Sherpa Anthropologist
"I have seen 3 books about a client who summited Everest with me twice. I have been to the top of Mt. Everest 8 times, but I don't even have a list of my climbs because I don't have time and don't know how. Fortunately, I met a young man from my own community who wanted to put my story in his book. I am so happy that this information will be shared now and in future generations." - Pemba Sherpa
