A Yak for Christmas: The Story of a Himalayan Holiday by Louise Hillary lands on the shelves of my shop, where it will be found in my Travel Asia section.

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1968, (First Edition) Hardback in dust wrapper.

Contains: Black & white photographs; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: After Sir Edmund Hillary and his expedition had completed a new hospital in the Sherpa village of Khunde near Mount Everest, his wife, Louise, and their three children (Peter, 11, Sarah, 10, and Belinda, 7) came to meet him in a high Himalayan valley. Accompanying the Hillarys was Lois Pearl, wife of the expedition Deputy Leader, and their three daughters. This book is an account of the adventures of the two families, walking to Everest base camp; spending Christmas with the Sherpas; and travelling home via India, Thailand (where they visited New Zealand Volunteers), and Malaysia. Here is another de-lightful story of family enterprise from the well-known author of Keep Calm If You Can.

Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a tape repaired closed tear to the foot of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.

Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 208 pages. Index. 8¾” x 5¾”.
