And Death Walks with Them

Above Eight Thousand Metres with Pakistani Porters from Shimshal

Christiane Fladt

  • This book throws light on the uncelebrated lives of some of Pakistanâs High-altitude Porters (HAPs), who help mountaineers climb the Pakistan-based high mountain peaks
  • The book primarily discusses the lives and careers of those HAPs who have summited 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 on 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
