The author, an experienced story teller, has sojourned in most of the world's great mountain ranges over 27 years as a member of the American Alpine Club; including the Khumbu of Nepal, Kunlun Range Pakistan, Garwhal Range India, Tien Shan Range China, Chimbulak Shan Kazakhstan, Svalbard Archipelago Norway, Torres del Paine Patagonia Chile, Mt. Aspiring New Zealand, Cradle Mountain Tasmania, Brooks Range Alaska, and the American Rockies.

Everest in his novel of the Himalayas "Incident at Lukla".
