Beschreibung

What does it take to survive? More than you could fathom. "YAK BUTTER BLUES: A Tibetan Trek of Faith" (an IPPY award winner), is an inspiring true story. Join a tenacious man, woman and their Tibetan horse as they set off to become the first Western couple to trek an ancient 1000-kilometer trail across the wilds of Tibet. Their incredible odyssey provides a riveting tale of human endurance and an intimate first-hand look at the valiant struggle of the Tibetan culture to survive - as well as at the humanity connecting us all.


"Wilson observes the impact of the Chinese occupation on the daily lives of Tibetans... Recommended for adventure travel and Tibetan culture collections." ~ LIBRARY JOURNAL


"An engrossing, fascinating read sure to be relished by those readers interested in adventure travel and the Tibetan culture. It is also a highly spiritual story of faith which reminds us that nothing is really impossible..." ~ MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW


"A hair-raising yarn...a high-altitude tale of synchronicity, divine providence, begging monks, trigger-happy Chinese soldiers and dehydration." ~ PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE


"You can almost smell the dust and feel the blisters. Worth a read by any adventure or travel-trekking novel enthusiast." ~ BACKPACKING LIGHT MAGAZINE


"A true pilgrimage, one that plumbs the heart of troubled Tibet..." ~ HONOLULU ADVERTISER


"A wonderful and wild read...charged, alive, and a little threatening. Yak Butter Blues flickers insistently like a flashbulb afterimage in the mind long after the book is tucked away." ~ Richard Bangs, adventurer/Producer Richard Bangs ADVENTURES


"A soaring travel diary. It places the reader in the thick of the action every bit as well as Marco Polo transported Italians to China and, as it seems to me, better than Lowell Thomas led readers in the dust of Lawrence of Arabia." ~ Joseph W. Bean, MAUI WEEKLY


"Told with humor and insight, this vivid narrative allows you to vicariously experience life at true Tibetan pace, one step at a time: so close, you can almost smell the yak butter." ~ Michael Buckley, author, TIBET: THE BRADT TRAVEL GUIDE


"Inspiring, Engaging, Compassionate! This book is a treasure to the Tibetan people and to the rest of the world. It gives us a true glimpse of Tibet and captures a beautiful land and culture that may not be around in years to come. Well done!" ~ Naomi C. Rose, author, TIBETAN TALES FOR LITTLE BUDDHAS
