pilgrims wending their way around sacred peaks, and hardy nomads
herding their yaks. The "Land of Snows" may be blurred by Chinese
politics, but Michael Buckley's "Tibet" gives you the practical
advice necessary to sidestep potential obstacles and explore this
enigmatic country to the full. Let the adventure begin! *Tibetan
