The Portland Monthly just did a great profile about the story behind the story of Buried in the Sky. I am not at all used to being written about (or writing about myself in this context) and am much more comfortable asking questions than answering them. But, heck, this is what I'm supposedly supposed to do to help the book be successful.
I also just arrived in Kathmandu for an early book launch. More details on that later.

My book was just mentioned on the Rachel Maddow show! Granted, it didn't have much to do with what we were talking about, but it was neat to see it!

I believe this is the first review of Buried in the Sky! From Library Journal's Nonfiction Previews:
"As long as Westerners have been scaling the Himalayas, Sherpas—inhabitants of Nepal’s most mountainous regions—have climbed with them, not merely as porters but as expert mountaineers. Yet they have never been given their due. Here is the story of Chhiring Dorje Sherpa and Pasang Lama, who participated in the 2008 assault on K2 that left 11 climbers dead, though they themselves survived. The book takes pains to explore their culture and the burden felt by such impoverished young men who take on dangerous work that pays well yet remains an offense to the mountains they revere. Sobering."
