Everest -- a mountain known all around the world and surrounded by the tragic romanticism of climbers risking everything for a dream. Although much has been written on the feats and accomplishments of these climbers, what about the people who actually live in the shadow of the mountain and the ways climbers and trekkers affect their lives? Ed Douglas spent time traveling in Nepal and Tibet, talking to politicians, environmentalists and mountaineers, and to local people who live around the mountain they call Chomolungma, Goddess Mother of the World.

This sensitive account of Douglas' travels explores the issues facing a region struggling to develop and change -- issues brought on by the growing mountaineering and trekking industries, issues that go far beyond how to clear up all the piling rubbish climbers leave behind. With honesty and humor, Chomolungma Sings the Blues sheds a new and different light on the mountain and its people.
