Praise For Seven Years in Tibet

“One of the grandest and most incredible adventure stories I have ever read.”
The New York Times Book Review

“First there is the incredibly adventurous twenty-onemonth trek across rugged mountain and desolate plain to the mysterious heartland of Tibet; then the fascinating picture, rich in amazing detail, of life in Lhasa. . . . Final chapters draw an intimate portrait of the youthful Dalai Lama.”
The Atlantic Monthly
