And Death Walks with them

Above Eight Thousand Metres with Pakistani Porters from Shimshal
Christiane Fladt
The author intends to throw 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.
