Portrait

Indomitable traveller, opera singer and anchorite, a onetime director of the Tunis Casino and the first Western woman to be granted an audience with the Dalai Lama-few women have shaped more fascinating lives for themselves than Alexandra David-Neel. She was born in Paris in 1868, the only child of an unhappy marriage and constantly ran away from home. After studying eastern religions in Paris, she went to India and Ceylon, and thereafter toured the Far and Middle East and North Africa as an opera singer. In 1904 she married Philippe Francois Neel in Tunis: they separated almost immediately, but he financed many of her later travels and they regularly wrote to each other up to the time of his death in 1941. In 1911, she left Paris for Northern India, where she subsequently graduated as a Lama, and spent a winter with her boy companion, Yongden, a Sikkimese lama, in a cave, dressed only in a cotton garment and studying Buddhist teaching. Later she spent three years in a Peking monastery. In 1923, after having travelled with Yongden from Calcutta through Burma, Japan, and Korea to Peking, covering nearly 5,000 miles by mule, yak and horse across China into north-eastern Tibet, up into Mongolia and the Gobi, she arrived at the Mekong River. From here, she and Yongden set out, disguised as Tibetan pilgrims, for Lhasa. It is at this point that Alexandra David-Neel, in the liveliest of her many books, takes up her story, written in English and first published in 1927 by Harper & Brothers. It is one of the most remarkable of all travellers' tales. In 1925, after fourteen years in Asia, she returned to France a celebrity. She was awarded many honours, including the Grande Medaille d'Or of La Societe de Geographie. In 1936, with Yongden at her side, she went to Asia for the last time and remained for eight years. A legend in her own time, she died just before her 101st birthday, in 1969.

Pressestimmen

"David-Neel was indisputably a fearless traveler, a rogue's rogue. Her account has the power to awe even today."--Outside magazine
