Overview

Sacred Mountain: Everest by Christine Taylor-Butler

Mount Everest—a place of mystery, majesty, and unparalleled beauty—rises into the sky higher than any other mountain on Earth. Many stories have been told about the dangers and triumphs of climbing to the summit; but few have been written about the Sherpa, the people who have lived on the mountain for centuries and consider it sacred. Known for their bravery, strength, and skill in navigating the mountain's treacherous slopes, Sherpas have played a crucial role in Mount Everest's exploration since the 1920s. In recent years, however, increasing tourism has threatened the mountain's fragile ecosystem. The Sherpa now face the challenge of restoring and protecting this sacred mountain for their future and for the world. With stunning photographs and engaging text, Scared Mountain presents a unique picture of Mount Everest—its history, its ecology, and especially its people—that will captivate readers of all ages.
