About this Item

Matthiessen, Peter. THE SNOW LEOPARD. New York, 1978, Viking Press, First American Edition. 338 pp, endpaper maps. In this beautifully written book, the author recounts a journey to find the Snow Leopard with famed field biologist George Schaller. They set out walking from Pokhara, hoping to reach the Crystal Mountain in the land of Dolpo, on the Tibetan Plateau in western Nepal. Matthiessen calls this journey of over250 miles across the Himalaya "a true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart.¿ Winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction, this search for the elusive and endangered mammal becomes, through his writing, a Zen-inspired reflection on his wife¿s death and a search for his own meaning on the Crystal Mountain. Signed on the title page by Peter Matthiessen, obtained on visit to author¿s home, The Hamptons, New York in 2010. Slightly chipped and wrinkled DJ, VG+. NZ$600. Bookseller Inventory # 000248
