A Few Feet Short Jamey Glasnovic read online review & book description:

In the follow-up to his first book, Lost and Found, Jamey Glasnovic ventures into the Himalaya to get away from the monotony of the workaday grind, searching for direction, inspiration and for his place in the world.

From the Kathmandu Valley to the Middle Hills and the highest peaks on the planet, Glasnovic’s journey takes him through the cultural melting pot of northeastern Nepal and up into the Khumbu Valley, traditional homeland of the Sherpa people, finding his way eventually, and without any intention of actually climbing it, to the base of that most iconic of mountains, Everest.

What should be a journey back in time to a land without roads or central heating or convenience stores (and until recently without reliable electricity or internet access either), is in reality a visit to a rapidly changing collection of cultures desperate to keep up with the busy world around them. A Few Feet Short is at once a search for enlightenment, a quest for spiritual guidance, and a simple pilgrimage along ancient and well-trodden trails that begins with that age-old question ‘What do I want to do with my life, anyway?’
