9780006550921: Seven Years in Tibet (Flamingo Modern Classics)

A film tie-in edition to the new film starring Brad Pitt and directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud of one of the greatest and most enduring travel accounts of the twentieth century.

Heinrich Harrer, already a famous mountaineer and Olympic ski champion, was caught by the outbreak of the Second World War while climbing in the Himalayas. Being an Austrian, he was interned in India. By an almost super-human effort, and on his third attempt, he succeeded in escaping from the internment camp and fled into Tibet.

After a series of remarkable experiences in a country never crossed before by a Westerner, Harrer reached the forbidden city of Lhasa. He stayed there for seven years, learned the language and acquired a greater understanding of Tibet and the Tibetans than any Westerner had ever before achieved. He became the friend and tutor of the young Dalai Lama and finally accompanied him into India when he was put to flight by the Red Chinese invasion.

Product Description:

Seven Years In Tibet

Review:

‘Like the voyage of the Kon-Tiki, it deserves to take its place among the few great travel stories of our own times’
The Times

‘Few adventureres in this century have had the combined luck and hardihood to return with such news as this. Fewer still have rendered it so powerfully unadorned.’
Times Literary Supplement
