My Quest for the Yeti – R. Messner

questMy Quest for the Yeti
Reinhold Messner (translated by Peter Constantine)
2000 (English edition), St. Martin’s Press
169pp.


This is really two books: one, an adventure tale by a great mountaineer; the other, a confusing attempt to show the yeti is a large and very strange type of brown bear. Whatever one thinks of the yeti, the bear hypothesis seems a poor fit. Messner describes yetis routinely walking and running on two feet and includes photographs of an ordinary-looking brown bear he claims is the mysterious bipedal chemo, or yeti.
