Detailed Product Description

Corvallis Oregon, Calyx, 1993. 270 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover - no dust jacket issued - or softcover. Near Fine to Fine.

Scot describes several climbs, and movingly recounts her experiences with Nepali people, offering a fresh view of their world.  One of the most moving memoirs written, this account of Barbara Scot's year in Nepal demonstrates insight into cultural difference and challenges readers with women's global struggles while nurturing a deep empathy and respect for the Nepali people.

Scot's reflections of this tiny unspoiled land at the top of the world are often haunting.' New York Newsday 'While Scot never sugarcoats the hardships, she fulfills two of the travel writers most important tasks: evoking a deep sense of place and instilling in the reader a desire to go there. 'Booklist' Barbara Scot gives us the Nepal she saw, touched, visited with a feminist's respect for difference. Hers is a tale of sharing, and we are privileged to see through her eyes, understand through her exquisite sensibility.
