 "Only Two for Everest" by Lyn McKinnon
  In 1951 Guy Cotter's father Ed, joined a group of young kiwis who intended to achieve the first ascent of Mukut Parbat, a 7242m peak in the Indian Garhwal. The team included (leader) Earle Riddiford, George Lowe, Ed Hillary and Cotter with a small Sherpa team. After Cotter, Riddiford and Passang Dawa Lama summited the mountain, an invite arrived from Eric Shipton inviting two of the team to join the Everest reconnaissance. This thoughtfully written and well-researched book uncovers the events that followed that without Cotter, Riddiford and Passang Dawa Lama’s successful Mukat Parbat ascent would have changed the history of New Zealand (and possibly British) mountaineering forever.


 "Outdoor Appetite" by the Himalayan Trust
  The Himalayan Trust Outdoor Appetite Cookbook is produced here in new Zealand and is full of healthy, wholesome and delicious food recipes, stories and photographs, reflecting the Himalayan trust's love for adventure and the outdoors. 100% of the price goes straight into the work of the Himalayan Trust in the Everest region of Nepal where they are helping to rebuild schools damaged in the 2015 earthquakes to give more children access to quality education.  This wonderful cookbook, with a whitebait recipe by Guy Cotter, is available for through our shop.
