Review:

"A beautiful book, and worthy of the mountains he is among" (Paul Theroux)

"What began as a practical search for the rare snow leopard, revered Buddhist emblem, developed into a quest for the meaning of Being. An enjoyable combination of mountaineering and mysticism" ( Observer)

"It's a tale of an inner struggle for calm, and would be an inspiring and sustaining desert island companion" (Emily Barr)

"As much the chronicle of an inner journey as it is the learned recording of an unfamiliar territory...a timeless account" ( Independent)

"An evocative account of a remote and timeless place and its people" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

'Matthiessen's book is a triumph that will outlive him. It is a masterpiece' John Hillaby
