Inhaltsangabe:

Book by Hutchison, Robert A

From the Inside Flap:

"The yeti is alive, though perhaps not so well, and living in Khumbu, the Sherpa homeland of north-eastern Nepal. This strange and mysterious creature may be living elsewhere, but I can affirm that it is in Khumbu because I have seen its footprints and know where in the region it resides. A victim of the deteriorating environment, however, the yeti is on the brink of extinction and may disappear from the Himalayas before science admits that it ever existed." So writes Robert Hutchison in his introduction to this fascinating book. In late 1987, Hutchison and a small support group journeyed to the Himalayas to find the elusive yeti; the Abominable Snowman which has been legendary for centuries. As recently as 1986, Italian climber Reinhold Messner reported seeing two separate creatures in one day while walking in the forests to the north-east of Everest. Now, Hutchison intended to put all the arguments to rest by discovering the home of the yeti and, with luck, the creature itself. In this vivid description of his odyssey deep into the Himalayas, Robert Hutchison encounters the amazing landscape, mountains and valleys of Nepal. He also finds the desecration wreaked on the entire country by Man and his works: Coke cans around Everest base camp, domesticated animals over-grazing grasslands and problems caused by changing weather patterns which result from Man's pollution of the atmosphere. Both exciting and moving, In the Tracks of the Yeti is a seminal work in the history of Nepal and its most famous inhabitant.
