Hard work but informative,
This review is from: Return To Tibet (Paperback)
To understand this book, you need to have read "Seven Years in the Tibet". It is not strong on narative but rather a comparison of the present (at the time of writing) with his past memories - and in general Tibet doesn't compare well. He is obviously horrified by the damage done in an attempt to eradicate it's past but heartened by the tenacity of the people in maintaining the memory (if not the practices) of their culture and religion.
Harrer has a strong love for this enigmatic country and it's people which comes across in every page, however this book is hard work compared to his other works.
