Description
Information
In 1982, while he was still a schoolboy, Patrick French met the Dalai Lama for the first time. Ever since he has been fascinated by Tibet's people, its history, and its recent plight.

'Into Tibet' is a magical combination of travel and history, a unique exploration of one of the most beautiful, isolated, mysterious and misunderstood countries on earth.

The book follows Patrick French's progress on a journey through Tibet, sidetracked on the way by a cascade of information, thoughts and reflections on such subjects as the correct method of travelling across a desert by night; the advisability of not naming your children until their sixth year; and comparatively recent events like the removal of a corrupt Regent's eyeballs by means of a yak's knucklebones in 1933.

Readers of Patrick French's previous books have relished their singular combination of wit, erudition and originality. 'Into Tibet' is a worthy successor.
