Hawley is one of the most important figures in Himalayan climbing, although not herself a climber. For more than four decades she has been inextricably linked to all expeditions coming into Nepal and is the keeper of record for all expedition statistics. Despite her sharp tongue and rigorous interview style, she commands the respect of climbers from around the world. McDonald’s book follows Hawley’s life, the development of Himalayan mountaineering, and Nepal’s entry into the 20th century. It is based on extensive interviews with Hawley, celebrated mountaineers, and Kathmandu intimates, and full access to Hawley’s meticulous records and correspondence.
