Claiming the High Ground : Sherpas, Subsistence, and Environmental Change in the Highest Himalaya

Stevens, Stanley F.
Berkeley :  University of California Press, 1993

"Stanley Stevens brings a new historical perspective to his study of a subsistence society in ever-increasing contact with the outside world. Stevens's innovative use of oral history and cultural ecology suggests that tourism is not the watershed circumstance many have considered it to be. He documents the Sherpas' ingenious adaptation to high-altitude conditions, their past and present agricultural, pastoral, trade, and forest management practices, and their own perspectives on the environmental history of their homeland."Publisher's Description
