Fladt throws light on the uncelebrated lives of some of Pakistan’s High Altitude Porters (HAPs), who help mountaineers climb the Pakistan-based eight-thousand-metre peaks. The author has attempted to delve into their lives by digging out adventure and drama in their stories, which makes her work a significant contribution to the literature available on this topic. This book will be the first to record the names of the porters alongside those of the more wealthy climbers who hired them. Part one details the people and landscape of Shimshal and part two provides sketches of 18 high altitude porters who participated in international expeditions to Pakistan’s 8000m peaks.
