      Before I read this book, I did not know much about Tibet. Of course I knew about the Dalai Lama and that he was in exile because of the Chinese invasion, but I didn't know much more. This book is a great vehicle to remember the Tibet that has been lost in the hopes that Tibet will soon be free so that the lost Tibet can be resurrected. I want to read Seven Years in Tibet, too.

      A nice photographic companion piece to Seven Years in Tibet. There's not a whole lot of new information, mainly just photos that complement his previously told stories, but it's still worth checking out.

      Well, it ain't no Seven Years. And it's obviously tragic. Just OK.
