For more than thirty-five years, David Zurick—one of the world’s foremost experts and writers on the Himalaya—has been trekking this remote, dramatic region and documenting its magnificent geographical features. In this, his third book on the Himalaya, Zurick offers a different and more personal appraisal of the region, detailing his own intimate experiences with the environment and the people who live there. In a clear, conversational style, Zurick covers a wide array of topics, from the interplay of different religions in Kathmandu to the economic and social changes transpiring in Bhutan to the fragile frontier of Tibet.
