An affectionate travelogue that conveys not only impressions of everyday life and descriptions of unique Tibetan customs and traditions but brings us Tibetan history, politics, and religion from a fresh, unstudied perspective Despite the determined efforts of the Dalai Lama to publicize the Tibetan cause, for many the people, culture, history, and traditions of this country remain mysterious. Niema Ash was one of the first Westerners to enter the country when its borders were briefly opened, and in this highly absorbing and personal account, she relates with wit, compassion, and sensitivity her encounters with people whose humor, spirituality, and sheer enthusiasm for life have carried them through years of oppression and suffering. This journey into a forbidden kingdom gives a fresh insight into the real heart of Tibet.

Recensioner i media

"Almost surreal in its assemblage of improbably colliding facts--a marriage of the bizarre and the beautiful that chills the spine as often as it warms the heart." --Times "Excellent--Niema Ash really understands the situation facing Tibet and conveys it with remarkable perception." --Tenzin Choegyal, brother of the Dalai Lama
