This is an oldy but a goody It was originally published in 1989 though I read a 2000 edition that I bought in Pokhara Nepal is probably the only place one is likely to find this book on the shelves of a bookstore other than used book sellers If you didn t get your copy in Nepal or haven t been to the Himalaya the one thing you need to know to admire the uirkiness of this book is that the grandiosity of what you experience in the Himalaya makes lost cities ala Shangri La or lost species ala the Yeti seem less unlikely than you would ordinarily think themThis isn t so much a novel in the sense of a work with a single narrative arc as it is a novel in stories that consists of four adventure stories featuring the same lead characters George Fergusson and George Freds Fredricks some overlapping minor characters and all of them set somewhere within Nepal The cross cutting theme of these stories is that of trying to rescue the magic of Nepal dusty and dilapidated as it can sometimes be from modernity and the grasping hands thereof The point of view character varies from one story to the next though not within stories The setting criss crosses Nepal from Everest to Chitwan forest to ill defined border areas but always going back to or cutting through Kathmandu The titular first story of the book is about an attempt to rescue a Yeti that has been captured and taken King Kong style back to civilization by way of Kathmandu The second adventure presents a race to hide the body of a famous deceased climber before it can be found and plundered by individuals who would like to take it from Nepal to make their names from the investigation of it or possibly the novelty of it You may or may not be aware that the bodies of most of the people who ve died climbing Everest remain up there often buried in snow and ice but occasionally exposed The penultimate story is about trying to save Shangri La by stopping a road that is to be built too close to it for comfort The final adventure imagines that there are ancient of tunnels under Nepal and centered in Kathmandu In this story the conflict between the old and modernity is brought to a head is a most challenging way by the fact that the threat to the secret ancient tunnels is a badly needed sewer system for Kathmandu While in the first three stories the reader readily knows who to root for in this last story he or she is hung on the horns of a dilemma I enjoyed this book tremendously It s humorous The two Georges though one conveniently goes by the name Freds offer a classic odd couple dynamic The stories and characters are uirky but the book still manages to hang on to its theme and lessons I d highly recommend this book for those who like humorous adventure stories Academia Obscura you
