About the Author

The author's other adventures have included cycling across the Kalahari and Namib deserts, getting captured by pirates while canoeing down the Congo River, hunting with Bushmen, and falling through a crevasse while ice climbing unroped in the Andes. Currently living in Salinas California, teaching physics and astronomy, he says I have never owned a car, which makes me a true counter-culture freak in the US.

Reviews

'A remarkable book... Described in very graphic and downright frightening terms.' Chris South, BBC Radio 'I found The Two-Year Mountain interesting as much for the writer's own growth in relating to, and valuing a culture, way of life, and traditions so totally in contrast with that of his own.' Lord Hunt, Leader of the First Successful Mount Everest Expedition 'I have read The Two-Year Mountain with pleasure.' Victor Zorza, The Times, London 'Well worth reading, especially for anyone intending to trek in Nepal. It tells you far more about that endlessly fascinating country than any half dozen of your average climbing narratives.' High Magazine, British Mountaineering Council 'As much an autobiography as a travel book.' The Good Book Guide, Winner of the Queen's Award for Export Achievement '... [Phil Deutschle] .. describes [his journey] here agreeably, in affable, informal style.' Good Book Guide
