A real anthropological gem, combined with an amazing tale of human determination and daring. I watched the film version some years ago, and promised myself that I'd read the original account as soon as possible. About a decade later I've finally got round to it!! The book is of course far more detailed, and paints an intricate and fascinating picture of a lost society, archaic even at the time, but all the more amazing for that fact. I thoroughly recommend this volume for anyone blessed with a vivid imagination, or a longing for the wonders of the past.

A lean and clean story teller. Harrer tells a fascinating and non romantic descriptive tale of his travels as a mountaineer, adventurer, prisoner of war and friend of the Dalai Lama in a breathtaking and unique landscape. I was gripped and enthralled throughout. An unrivalled insight into a Tibetan culture from an 'outsider's' perspective - a culture which is being eroded. He does justice to his experience.

An amazing adventure. Not written in a dramatic fashion - just as it happened
