Product description


Almost surreal in its assemblage of improbably colliding facts - a marriage of the bizarre and the beautiful that chills the spine as often as it warms the heart. --The Times

Excellent - Niema Ash really understands the situation facing Tibet and conveys it with remarkble perception. --Tenzin Choegyal, brother of the Dalai Lama

Thought-provoking and will evoke a deep desire to go to Tibet. --Geographical Magazine


Despite the determined efforts of the Dalai Lama to publicise the Tibetan cause, for many of us the country, its people, culture and traditions remain mysterious. Niema Ash was one of the first Westerners to enter the country when its borders were briefly opened. In this highly absorbing and personal account, she relates with wit, compassion and sensitivity her encounters with people whose humour, spirituality and sheer enthusiasm for life have carried them through years of oppression and suffering. This book gives a fresh insight into the real heart of Tibet. She takes us with her on a journey into this intriguing forbidden kingdom.
