Author Biography: The Dalai Lama is the author of many books, including My Land and My People (1962) and The Buddhism of Tibet (1975). In 1989 the Nobel Committee awarded him the Peace Prize, recognizing him as "the religious and political leader of the Tibetan people" and praising his philosophy of peace based on "reverence for all things living and upon the concept of universal responsibility embracing all mankind as well as nature." Since 1972 Galen Rowell has devoted his life to wilderness exploration and photography, working on many assignments for National Geographic and other major publications. He has published nine books, including Mountain Light (1986) and The Art of Adventure (1989) and his photographs have been widely exhibited in galleries and museums. In 1984 he received the Ansel Adams Award for his contribution to wilderness photography.
One of the world's spiritual leaders and a renowned wilderness photographer combine their visions of Tibet in this beautiful book. Essays by the Fourteenth Dalai Lama appear with Galen Rowell's dramatic images in a moving presentation of the splendors of Tibet's revered but threatened heritage. Color photos.
