Format: Hardcover
This moving personal family history covering three generations of Tibetan women conveys the tragedy of the Chinese occupation of Tibet with more power than news reports or statistics. The details are different, but in a way it is a universal story not just of Tibet, but of every culture that has been purposely suppressed by another. Author Yangzom Brauen chronicles the lives of her grandmother, who has maintained the life of a Tibetan nun in all the years she's had to live abroad, her mother, who had to make a dangerous escape from Tibet as a young child, and herself, an actress and Tibetan activist. After her mother met and eventually married a Swiss man in India, Brauen was born in Switzerland, giving her a foot in both Tibet and the West and an ideal vantage point for writing this account. While in many ways Brauen has lived the life of a typical Westerner, she grew up celebrating Tibetan holidays, eating Tibetan food and listening to her grandmother's and mother's stories of life in Tibet and in exile. Across Many Mountains, which manages to be both heartbreaking and inspiring, begins when Brauen's grandmother was a young girl in a small, remote Tibetan village and continues through the 2008 Tibetan uprising and 2010 earthquake. I stayed up late reading this fascinating book, completely wrapped up in the lives of all three women.

highly recomended - an easy read starting in tibet and spanning 3 generations of women - really interesting from many perspectives.i was disapointed though that there wasnt more written about how the escape and move effected the daughter in future life and the granddaughter..the latter years i felt got more glossed over and i felt there was a lot more material there..but still its an excellant read - totally inspiring about forgiveness and non detatchment.

This inspirational story of three generations was disappointing to me as the writing is very mundane would not recommend this book .

I found the book very enlightening regarding the history of the Tibetan People. It was well written and easy in holding my attention. I found it shocking that the politicians of the world just stand back and do nothing to help the Tibetan People get the freedom to practice their faith, something that should be the right of and people.

I couldn't put this book down. Having a fascination for the Dalai Lama, India and Tibet and having visited McLeod Ganj in the Himalayas, this book really appealed to me and I wasn't disappointed. Fantastic read for anyone interested in this area of the world and its history.
