9780956840967: Even Everest Shook: Caught in the Nepal Earthquake 2015

Looking for adventure Tony Hill made the spontaneous decision to trek to Everest Base Camp in April 2015. After visiting the ancient temples and squares of Kathmandu, he flew into ‘the most dangerous airport in the world,’ Lukla, and with a group of fellow travellers from around the world set off up the Himalayan valleys Everest bound. Only 3 days into the trek they were in a mountain village when the devastating Nepal Earthquake struck. Lucky to escape uninjured - buildings crumbled at their side, boulders crashed through the ceiling of their teahouse - they find themselves stranded. Journey with Tony Hill, before, during and in the aftermath of the earthquake (and many aftershocks), and through his writing and eyes (via a series of stunning and haunting photographs) experience breathtaking beauty, the bonding and humour of a diverse set of characters, then overwhelming tragedy, and the fragility, resilience and spirituality of the human condition, as he slowly makes his way out of a disaster zone and home. Contains 59 colour photographs. From the author of the acclaimed If the Kids are United. www.manutdbooks.com

About the Author:

Tony Hill hails from Jacksdale: an old mining village on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, deep in D.H. Lawrence country. The world famous writer used to come dancing in Tony's village; where he had a great time, until, allegedly, getting knocked out for not supporting a local team. This is mentioned in Tony's books If the Kids are United and The Palace and the Punks. One of the last authors to be published by Victor Gollancz (before the Orion takeover), his - Kes evoking - book If the Kids are United was called 'the working-class Fever Pitch,' and received 5 and 4 star reviews.

Review:

'This is a touching read, starting light-hearted and adventurous, and then turning a book about witnessing the devastating earthquake on a personal level, as part of a trekking group.' Life as a Journey.
