House of Snow: An Anthology of the Greatest Writing About Nepal foreword by Ranulph Fiennes, introduction by Ed Douglas

In 2015, Sagarmatha frowned. Tectonic plates moved. A deadly earthquake devastated Nepal.

In the wake of disaster, House of Snow brings together over 50 excerpts of fiction and non-fiction celebrating the breathtaking landscapes and rich cultural heritage of this fascinating country. Here are explorers and mountaineers, poets and political journalists, national treasures and international celebrities. Featuring a diverse cast of writers such as Michael Palin and Jon Krakauer, Lakshmīprāsad Devkoṭā and Lil Bahadur Chettri – all hand-picked by well-known authors and scholars of Nepali literature including Samrat Upadhyay, Michael Hutt, Isabella Tree and Thomas Bell. House of Snow is the biggest, most comprehensive and most beautiful collection of writing about Nepal in print.

All profits from the sales of this book will be donated to the Pahar Trust Nepal to fund earthquake relief projects.
