Best known as the leader of India's first successful Everest expedition in 1965, Captain M.S. Kohli's autobiography is a tour de force that traces his journey as a young boy amongst the quiet peaks of Haripur, in North-West Frontier Province, to his near-death experience during the Partition, to his rise up the ranks of the Indian Navy and the Indian Mountaineering Federation. A life and experiences defined by honesty, simplicity and team spirit, his skill as a mountaineer was put to test when, working as an intelligence operator, he was involved in the clandestine mission in 1965 to place plutonium powered monitoring devices on Nanda Devi and Nanda Kot. In 1989, in consultation with Sir Edmund Hillary, Captain Kohli founded the Himalayan Environment Trust with members such as, Reinhold Messner, Maurice Herzog, Chris Bonington, and Junko Tabei with whom he strives to save the Himalayas for future generations. From heading secret missions to leading various successful expeditions to the Himalayas, his story of utmost courage and adventure is fascinating and highlights what he has always believed in safety of his men and honour of the country.

Steeped deep into adventure since birth in 1931 and having survived endless encounters with death during the Partition in 1947, Captain M.S. Kohli carved out a spectacular career of 42 years spanning the Indian Navy, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, and Air India. During his stint with Air India he travelled to over 50 countries carrying with him the enchantment and magic of the Himalayan giants he climbed. Known around the world as an evangelist of the Himalayas, he promotes trekking, adventure-tourism, and outdoor leadership. In India, among other things, he introduced white-water rafting, aero sports, international congresses, luxury sea cruises, and tourist charters to Goa, Lakshadweep and the Andaman islands. Captain Kohli is a recipient of several national and international honours including the Padma Bhushan, the Arjuna Award, and the Tenzing Norgay Lifetime National Adventure Award.
