Product description


Thomson tells a story that has to do with politics, ecology and history, as much as with the strenuous adventure in a beautiful setting that his book so vividly celebrates. (INDEPENDENT (9.4.04))

NANDA DEVI is...a spirited homage to a remote, awesome landscape. Rich in detail and light of tone, it teases its stories out slowly and gently and, by playing down the physical discomforts, will make non-climbers wants to travel to the Sanctuary. (Chris Moss TELEGRAPH (24.4.04))

Thomson has a nose for stories...[And] the photographs in Hugh Thomson's book...picture the sensational and, yes, holy landscape in which all the events he describes took place. (Geoffrey Moorhouse GUARDIAN (24.4.04))

Gripping. (GOOD BOOK GUIDE (1.5.04))

the book offers...a welcome escape to somewhere rare and wonderful. (SUNDAY TIMES (9.5.04))

This book eloquently lays out the often bizarre, and always interesting history of this remote area and its explorers, as well as charting the author's own expedition into the sanctuary...Informative, yet never dry, the book offers an insight into place of near mythical status and takes the reader where they will never have the chance to go. (ADVENTURE TRAVEL (1.5.04))

Thomson weaves the story of his own journey to this Himalayan lost Eden with accounts of earlier expeditions, to give a tantalizing glimpse of this fragile, harshly beautiful place. (GLOBAL (May '04))

fascinating. (WANDERLUST (June/July '04))

Thomson effortlessly blends his own experiences and anecdotes from his fellow team members with tales of expeditions past, providing an all-encompassing picture of both the beauty and history of the sanctuary...Thomson's engaging and descriptive style drawns you in, imparting a burning desire to pull on a pair of hiking boots and join him for even the post terrifying of traverses. (GEOGRAPHICAL (October))
