8,848 CLAMA EVEREST by Jorge M. Mier
The death of one of the most acclaimed explorers of the 20th century causes his grandson, the American mountaineer Henry Robert Stefansson, to be unexpectedly under the gaze of the media. This coupled with a series of events chained by fate, will lead Henry to attempt to tread the summit of Everest on December 25.
For the first time, you will have to face the challenges of the mountain free from your grandfather’s shadow. This will force you to search within yourself to understand your profession on your own terms. In addition to facing the changes that this activity has brought to his life: fame, ego, the death of a friend … On that trip he will find a connection with the Sherpa people that he had never had.
8,848 Clama Everest is the story of a man who was born to lose himself in the mountains and suddenly finds himself alone. Told from different perspectives, it will take us to perceive the adventure from different prisms. His ascent will be an internal struggle, a confrontation with his past and a conflict between two ways of understanding mountaineering. In that battle he will find his place in the world and assume a responsibility that will unite him with his companions forever.
“A beautiful novel that reflects what is happening in mountaineering today: winter, speed, ambition, the presence of the media … and also much of what has always moved mountaineers to climb mountains.” (Ramón Portilla)
