Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nepal is magical and mysterious, stirring the fantasies of travelers of every stripe -monks, mystics, hippies, and yuppies. It sits at the crossroads where Hindu India literally collided with Buddhist Tibet, producing a harmonious blend of cultures and traditions that remains maddeningly elusive but quintessontially Nepali. Nepal is renowned for its temples, shrines, and festivals. The spiritual seeker discovers that there are more gurus, sadhus, and rinpoches in Nepal than cereal brands in America. Some of the many notable authors you will find in Travelers' Tales Nepal include Peter Matthiessen, Jan Morris, Jimmy Carter, and Jeff Greenwald.

Synopsis:

Nepal is renowned for its temples, shrines, palaces, amazing mountains and jungles, and colorful festivals. Ever since it began admitting tourists in the early 1950s, its remarkable blend of cultures, traditions, and languages has stirred the longings and fantasies of travelers of every stripe. The foreign spiritual seeker soon discovers that there are more temples, gompas, gurus, sadhus, and rinpoches in Nepal than cereal brands in the U.S. This collection celebrates the country with pieces by Peter Matthiessen, Jeff Greenwald, Meg Lukens Noonan, Broughton Coburn, Diane Summers, Jimmy Carter, Susan Vreeland, and Jan Morris.
