When a teenager I worked for the brother of the autor of this book in Kendal. He survived the attempt of Everest that ended in tragedy with the deaths of Mallory & Irvine. this book covers his life as a doctor in South India and is his autobiography but sadly is now out of print. He was an early European that saw Tibet before the Chinese invasion.
