Detailed Product Description
Boston, Shambala, 1995, 1st edition. 192 pp, 150+ color photos. Large format hardcover, DJ, bright and Fine. Unused.

Returning after 20 years to Pokhara in central Nepal, where his award-winning book The Snow Leopard drew its fire, Matthiessen delivers another superb report from the land in the clouds. This time, he has collaborated with photographer Thomas Laird, which adds greatly to the effect of Matthiessen's prose – the clarity of the beautiful images equaling the clarity of the words.
 
With detached compassion, Matthiessen puts into simple order the daily life of this politically and environmentally ravaged land, from the rituals of sheep herding and wheat harvesting to the constant demands placed on a local Buddhist priest. Most readers will find that the stunning photography only enhances the feeling of actually being there.
 
''Matthiessen's expansive narrative and Laird's poignant photographs reveal a place where mountains five miles high cast their shadows over the deepest canyon in the world; where 150-million-year-old fossils rise to the light of day at 13,000 feet; and where mountain nomads spend their lives herding their flocks across desolate slopes and through desert valleys, utterly lost in the eternal earth and air.''

This is a large-format book; extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.
