Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was written from my parent's prospective of living in Labrang, Tibet. The experiences of living where we had no electricity and rode horses when traveling. It is a place of remote traveling and friendly Tibetans, once you get to know them.

By A Customer on September 19, 2000
Format: Paperback
The author Paul Kocot Nietupski was very fortunate in having the Griebenow's archives to start his research. The place described in this book becomes an amazing show of colors and cultures in the minds of the readers. It is especially well told the hardships and trial the Griebenow family had to go through during those years when that part of Asia could become hostile to the point of death to outsiders.
The author did very well stating facts over opinions since some people see the Griebenow's as culture thrashers not helpers to this isolated place. The Griebenow's lives are forever made alive by this book and its wonderful stories.
