Tiger of the Snows: Tenzing Norgay: The Boy Whose Dream Was Everest 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa boy tending Yaks at the base of the Himalayas, looked up. He looked up to the jagged crest of Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, and wanted nothing more than to climb ¿into the airless air¿ and emerge triumphant on the rocky pinnacle of ¿his mountain¿. This biography in verse chronicles the life of this climber as he develops his skills and realizes his dream, with the help of an important partnership. Ed Young¿s illustrations depict the icy grandeur of this hauntingly beautiful and formidable landscape. Young readers will enjoy the soaring emotions of this biography which casually emphasizes how much one can accomplish with determination and cooperation.
