About the Author

The Dalai Lama is the author of many books, including My Land and My People (1962) and The Buddhism of Tibet (1975). In 1989 the Nobel Committee awarded him the Peace Prize, recognizing him as "the religious and political leader of the Tibetan people" and praising his philosophy of peace based on "reverence for all things living and upon the concept of universal responsibility embracing all mankind as well as nature." Since 1972 Galen Rowell has devoted his life to wilderness exploration and photography, working on many assignments for National Geographic and other major publications. He has published nine books, including Mountain Light (1986) and The Art of Adventure (1989) and his photographs have been widely exhibited in galleries and museums. In 1984 he received the Ansel Adams Award for his contribution to wilderness photography.


Some partnerships seem to produce particularly felicitous results. Such is the case with this effort, a brilliant combination of Rowell's photographs of a much-loved country he has visited often and the Dalai Lama's sensitive commentary on his homeland. Both are so pleasing that it is impossible to praise one over the other. Both men speak from their hearts, to great effect. The Dalai Lama, the political and spiritual leader in exile of the Tibetan people, is the winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize. Rowell's work for National Geographic and his books such as Mountain Light have won him a wide following. Highly recommended.-- Mary Morgan Smith, Northland P.L.,Pittsburgh

"Mr. Rowell is an artist-adventurer, a risk-taking athlete, and, more than all that, a sensitive observer of people, animals and plants, who brings to the mountains a sense of history and a reporter's eye for human detail."--Raymond Sokolov, "The Wall Street Journal
