by Edmund Neuhaus




Since the age of eleven, Ed Neuhaus has been intensely motivated to trek the Himalayan foothills and stand before Mt. Everest. Now almost sixty, Neuhaus and his wife finally have that opportunity.After vigorously training in the Green Mountains of Vermont, arduously preparing their gear, and engaging a professional trekking agency, the pair makes the forty-hour trip to Katmandu, where their voyage begins. Their group includes thirty people, including the brave and devoted Sherpas that tend to their every need. Surrounded by spectacular beauty, and impoverished and unsanitary conditions, Ed and Olga set out with enthusiasm on the nineteen-day trek that will take them to Kala Pattar, where they will experience an unobstructed view of the world's highest mountain. Fairly quickly, the pair is assaulted by both physical and emotional demands as they realize that foot power is the only form of transport to their goal. However, they forge on with the group, testing every limit of their strength. A Dream of Everest is a raw reflection of the emotions and experiences that reveal how effort can be its own accomplishment.

Yellow Judge
Growing up in Portland Oregon I have always been fascinated with the mountains of the Cascades, Sierrras, Rocky mountains, but the Himalayas and Everest are in a class of their own. So I thank you foe taking me along on your journey. You and Olga are braver than I. I have been a skier but not a trekker or even a hiker.
Silly Dog
With down to earth wit and wisdom, Ed takes us with him and Olga to experience the daily struggle, suspense, ardor and triumph of treking the Himalayas. The journey ended too soon for the armchair reader, but left behind warm memories of cold nights and experiences with the community of humankind.
