Although told to Ullman in a mix of English and Nepali, you really get a sense of Tenzing's voice throughout. I laughed out loud a couple of times at his dry wit. This sentence on the final walk-in sums up both the man and the style for me: 'As I thought of Everest and the great days ahead of us the complaints of my companions sounded like the cackling of so many hens'.
I found a battered 1955 reprint some time ago and am very happy I did. A real shame that this is out of print.
