          If you like mountaineering books, check out Chessler Books online. Michael Chessler started as a mountaineering bookseller in 1984 and is in Colorado west of Denver. Last year he started selling things at a steep discount, in his 70s and trying to wind things up, but somehow got back into buying again in 2020. I went to his website to look for Walt Unsworth's "Everest: A Mountaineering History" for my son. It's the definitive history of Everest climbing and retails for about $50 on Amazon. Chessler had it for $8.99 new and a couple of other titles I looked at were deeply discounted. He also has a small selection of things like polar exploration books, etc.

            Dr Jay, what is your opinion of the commercialization of climbing Mt. Everest ? Plus I think I read some where that there are large piles of you-know-what being left behind by the hordes of climbers.
