One September, the writer and explorer Peter Matthiessen set out with field biologist George Schaller to journey 250 miles through the Himalayas to the Crystal Mountain on the Tibetan plateau. They wanted to study the wild blue sheep, the bharal, but also hoped to see the snow leopard, a creature so rarely spotted as to be nearly mythical. The Snow Leopard is not only an exquisite book of natural history but an extraordinary account of an inner journey ; a 'true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart.'

An evocative account of a remote and timeless place and its people * Sunday Times * As much the chronicle of an inner journey as it is the learned recording of an unfamiliar territory...a timeless account * Independent * It's a tale of an inner struggle for calm, and would be an inspiring and sustaining desert island companion -- Emily Barr What began as a practical search for the rare snow leopard, revered Buddhist emblem, developed into a quest for the meaning of Being. An enjoyable combination of mountaineering and mysticism * Observer * A beautiful book, and worthy of the mountains he is among -- Paul Theroux
