Nicholson’s style is not dissimilar from Riding the Iron Rooster by Paul Therous or the Fosters’ Forbidden Journey: The Life of Alexandra David Neel. Her use of language was right up my alley–descriptive and lyrical by turns. I don’t know that getting to Bhutan will actually ever happen for me, but based on the detailed descriptions Nicholson provided in this easy-to-read travelogue, I know some of what I’m missing. I would highly recommend this short introduction to a completely foreign locale to anyone interested in adventure travels, the Himalayas, or Asian cultures. There are enough distinctions in this country, including pictures of local garb, that it’s worth acquainting yourself with what she has painstakingly outlined.
Amazed by the outstanding Himalayan landscape, Nicholson also took time to meet the people, and through a series of very expressive photographs, she lets them ‘talk’ in their own words in the pages of her book.
Their customs, their everyday problems, their clothes and their food are all reflected here, along with the author’s lively anecdotes that make the readers feel like adventurous travelers going by her side through the rough paths of the Himalayas. This is a place of unique beauty, amazing constructions, and people who are kind enough to warm the heart of all travelers during their journey to this mystical part of the world.
