Yet Buried in the Sky is not merely a story of a tragedy. While Padoan recounts the events that led to a daring rescue by Chhiring Dorje Sherpa of his fellow sherpa Pasang Lama during that deadly expedition, she also explores the biography of these two men, as well as the culture of sherpa, turning these often anonymous guides into fully realized people.
In a special event sponsored by The King’s English Bookshop, Padoan will read from her book, accompanied by Chhiring as well as another survivor of the expedition, Dr. Eric Meyer. (Scott Renshaw)
