Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Shedding light on myths and rumors surrounding Tibet's nearly- impenetrable Tsangpo Gorge—a refuge revered for centuries by Tibetan Buddhists as sanctuary in times of strife and as a gateway to nirvana—this book chronicles nearly 100 years of explorations by scholars, adventurers, naturalists and religious pilgrims. McRae, a veteran journalist, follows the missions of those who sought the gorge's spiritual center: the "hidden falls" of the Tsangpo. His narratives evoke the region's daunting landscape of lush forests, hundred-foot-tall bamboo, and isolated temples, and provide evidence of why the gorge has been mythologized.
