Product description


A beautiful book, and worthy of the mountains he is among -- Paul Theroux

What began as a practical search for the rare snow leopard, revered Buddhist emblem, developed into a quest for the meaning of Being. An enjoyable combination of mountaineering and mysticism ― Observer

It's a tale of an inner struggle for calm, and would be an inspiring and sustaining desert island companion -- Emily Barr

As much the chronicle of an inner journey as it is the learned recording of an unfamiliar territory...a timeless account ― Independent

An evocative account of a remote and timeless place and its people ― Sunday Times

Book Description

A special edition hardback of one of the greatest pieces of travel and nature writing ever written. Go with Peter Matthiessen all the way to Dolpo, a Tibetan plateau in the high Himalayas.
