4.0 out of 5 stars A Look Back In History, 11 May 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Forbidden Land An account of a journey in Tibet, capture by the Tibetan authorities, imprisonment, torture and ultimate release (Kindle Edition)
Having read about recent Tibetan history this seemed an interesting look into life there over 100 years ago. The story is told by the British explorer and painter Arnold Landor as he travels through Tibet. The story is a fascinating insight into both how Tibetans lived in those days and also how a well to do explorer treated and described both the locals and also his entourage, who were treated as his servants and inferiors. It also describes the hardships and suffering caused by both the extreme conditions and at the hands of the Tibetans.

Whilst the language and attitudes are enough to make you cringe at times it is well worth a read to get a snapshot of history and how people were viewed in the days of the British Empire.
