Detailed Product Description
Los Angeles, 1983, 1st US edition. 275 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be chipped, book is fine. Fine condition.

As hard as the Tibetans tried to keep out foreigners, the British, Russians and others tried to get in. The exciting story of all the pundits, explorers, spies and climbers who penetrated Tibet before 1950. This book tells the story - often bizarre, sometimes tragic, frequently hair-raising - of the prising open of Tibet by an inquisitive outside world.
 
For no country has ever challenged man's imagination quite like this mysterious kingdom locked away in the heart of Central Asia. Inhabited by a people whose only wheel was the prayer-wheel, and ruled over by a God-king, Tibet has always been the stuff of travelers' dreams. In a world with few secrets left, here almost anything still seemed possible.
