Detailed Product Description
London, Geoffrey Bles, 1958. 1st edition. 191 pp, 24 b/w photos, 2 maps. Navy cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket and former owner's book plate on front end paper. Near Fine condition overall.

SIGNED/INSCRIBED/DATED by Peter Holmes: "With love and best wishes. Peter Holmes Sept. 1958."

The author's account of pre-1958 travels when accompanied by his wife, Judy, he traversed the mountainous desert province of Spiti on the borders of Tibet. He recounts details of village life and the prevailing influence exerted by the monasteries on the people; an account of a 12-year-old boy who had avoided the usual incarceration at the age of eight; and hair raising adventures in the Himalayas where the travelers successfully scaled previously un-climbed mountains. The text is supported by black and white photographs and maps of Ratang Gorge and Spiti, Lahul and Kulu.
