KMLF: Graham Hoyland – Yeti: An Abominable History

KMLF: Graham Hoyland – Yeti: An Abominable History

Details

Graham Hoyland, the climber who was responsible for finding the body of George Mallory on Mount Everest, has been on another quest. On an expedition to the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, he found and filmed footprints of the mythical Yeti in a part of the country which has never before been visited by Western explorers.

In a lost valley near the unclimbed mountain Gangkar Punsum, Graham Hoyland believes he was stalked by the mysterious Yeti, a beast so unspeakably powerful that locals says it can kill a yak with one savage blow of its fist.

Hoyland hears tales of the Yeti from Sherpas who report that they are impossible to track. He explores the literary hinterland behind the legend and hunts for the Yeti’s American cousin Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster and her African relative Mokele-Mbembe.

What leads mankind to the belief in monsters, and what happens when we are confronted with the brutal creatures of our nightmares?

"A towering work full of twists and turns" - Independent

'Yeti' by Graham Hoyland, published by Harper Collins will be available to buy at our bookshop over the weekend.
