Detailed Product Description
Two copies available.

New York, 1987, 1st ed. 238 pp, many olor photos, bibliography, endpaper maps. The author went to Tibet in 1982 under the guise of climbing Shishapangma with a group. Despite Chinese law which forbade it, she set off on her own to explore the country and meet the people.

The author writes of her journey of self-discovery. To the reader it gives a vivid impression of an ancient and mystical way of life that could soon disappear altogether now that the Chinese have homogenized homes, drilled industrial conformity into the economy and opened the floodgates to package doors. Hardcover, DJ, Fine.
