Something great about the earlier explorers and the times.
I'm kidding, of course, but inclusion of these characters might have at least generated a little interest into the ridiculous yeti legend.
Tom Slick and the Yeti? Well, he went on one expedition, then his mother (I'm not making this up) told him he couldn't go on any further trips to Nepal because he bruised his knees(!). He sponsored a couple more, but that's about it.
The evidence for proof of the existence of the 'abominable snowman'? Droppings. Yes, they found yeti crap, in numerous places all over Nepal. And tracks that could have been made by some other animal, maybe a snow leopard. Probably the source of the droppings also.
Pure speculation, and not worth wasting your time reading it.
This is a wonderful illustration of what men will subject themselves to in the name of fame, fortune and the solving of mysteries.
The book is put together in an entertaining style, well written and is fun to read. The photos are rare and well reproduced. An interesting read indeed.
