5.0 out of 5 stars Tragic Tale 10 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The factual record of an Australian trekker lost in the Himalayas and the extended rescue efforts to save him make compelling reading as for a work of fiction on hope and despair. The story commences with trekker James Scott describing how he came to be lost, and it is then taken up by his determined sister Joanne Robertson telling of her frustrating struggles, with not least the Australian Ambassador in Kathmandu, to gather information and to ensure searches continued. It is fascinating to read of James' endeavours to remain positive and stay alive, and of Joanne's hassles to gain cooperation and assistance. Both writers allude to Christian beliefs that on occasions are at odds with willingness to consider psychic or Buddhist connections. Together with insights to family grief this renders `Lost in the Himalayas' a multi-layered account that is further amplified as the 2 narrators interweave their contributions and build up tension towards the outcome. Readers must know there is some sort of `happy ending' as James survives to tell his story, but this is unlikely to ease the anguish of a tragic tale. `Lost in the Himalayas' is a well structured and well written inspirational story of human spirit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perseverence Pays 23 July 2007
James Scott's "claim to fame" is that he was lost in the Himalayas for 42 days. He didn't land on the moon, he isn't an Olympic athlete, but he has a fascinating story to tell; and all because of his sister. She kept pushing and pushing. As in Galaxy Quest - never give up!

Not as good as Into the Void, but just as nerve-racking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starvation in the Himalayas. 14 Dec 2012
Fascinating book about a medical student who becomes lost and trapped in the Himalayan mountains.. He uses his misfortune to chronicle his starvation coupling first hand experience with his medical knowledge. Well worth reading.
