Detailed Product Description
NY, 1950. 320 pp, many b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

SIGNED/INSCRIBED "To Don L. Griswold - Lowell Thomas Jr. March 17, '51"

Two of a very small handful of Americans to have visited Tibet in mid-20th century, Lowell Thomas Sr. and Jr. bring back a high adventure tale of their journeys, as well as more than 100 photographs, 32 in color. Much of the discourse is about the capital, Lhasa, where the center of Buddhism in Central Asia existed and when the Dali Lama actually lived there in peace. The threat of Communist China is very real and the narration anticipates the savagery that follows. 

Lowell Thomas Jr. met Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschnaiter (name is misspelled in the book as Autschnatter) and received an explanation of their route into Tibet.  See photograph Page 289.
