By Western standards, her life in a remote Himalayan mountain village might have seemed impoverished, but Kunsang had everything she wanted: a fine husband, two beloved children, and a peaceful life at the monastery. But that serenity was crushed underfoot as tens of thousands of Chinese troops invaded in Tibet in 1950. Fleeing the mountainous country was dangerous; on her perilous journey, Kunsang lost the man she married and her six-year-old daughter. Mountain to Mountain pays tribute to two courageous women: Kunsang and her daughter Sonam. This soulful memoir was written by Yangzom Brauen, Sonam's daughter.
