“Pemba Sherpa not only flies airplanes, climbs Himalayan peaks, and makes some of the world’s best momos, but he tells a great tale of initiative, persistence, and connectedness in a world of innumerable obstacles.”
—BROUGHTON COBURN, author of The Vast Unknown and Everest: Mountain Without Mercy
“Pemba Sherpa is the epitome of the American dream. He came to the U.S. to better himself, then as a successful entrepreneur, is now diligently working to improve the lives of his fellow Nepalese. It’s the story of overcoming great challenges to make the world a better place. Buy this eye-opening book! You’ll never think about Everest the same way again.”
—JEFF BLUMENFELD, editor of ExpeditionNews.com and the
author of Travel with Purpose: A Field Guide of Voluntourism
