Man of Everest is the story of a man who had been inspired by, and finally devoted his life to the mountains of the Great Himalaya. Spoken as a true son of the soil Tenzing through the capable pen of James Ramsey Ullman, tells us in his own word of his devotion to and fascination with the greatest of all the Himalayan Peaks Cholomungma commonly known to us as Mount Everest and of how in the end with his colleagues of the famed Hunt expedition, he finally was one of the first to set foot on is summit. Though this event was not free of the controversies that often accompany such achievements, Tenzing whilst recounting his memories of the actual surmounting of the summit has dealt with subject very candidly as may be clearly seen in the text, and for the first time a description of the actual happenings in tenzing's won words were made available to the world. Ullman's introduction to Tenzing and his commissioning to write this autobiography were all through the good offices of the United Press Agency. Tenzing had shown his reluctance to work with a British writer and showed his preference for working with an American writer instead. The great humility of the man was shown in his appreciation of the fact that fortune had allowed him to be one of the main participants in achieving this great fead. In his own words he says, "For I like to think that our victory was only for ourselves not only for our nations but for all men everywhere. What I felt was a great closeness to God and that was enough for me." "Tenzing, a simple man from the mountains, who overnight became an international hero. tenzing always a gentleman never allowed the fame to change this basis simple ways, I was privileged to be his friend."
