In the early 1970s, National Geographic ran an extensive series of articles investigating claims of long-lived people around the world. The Hunza Valley is a fertile valley that supports agriculture and provides isolation from the rest of the world, and it's also located at a very high altitude. The Hunza people, who live in the beautiful Hunza Valley in Northern Pakistan, are the healthiest and longest lived race of people so far discovered on earth. The author of this fascinating book set out on an adventurous journey to explore the question of why.
