Editorial Reviews

Review

“Thomson is a terrific storyteller… His wit, eye for detail, and reverence for humanity set him apart.” -- Publishers Weekly, for The White Rock

From the Publisher

Until 1934, the hidden valley of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, on the border between India and Tibet, had never been entered by man. Surrounded by 20,000–foot peaks, which seal off Mt. Nanda Devi at their center, it was virtually impenetrable. The many early explorers who were drawn there by the idea of a “lost Eden” could only gaze down with longing. But Eric Shipton and Bill Tilman, the “terrible twins” of prewar mountaineering, solved the problem by forcing an entrance up a precipitous river gorge. Subsequent expeditions were beset by tragedy, and concern for the fragile ecology of the Sanctuary finally led the Indian government to ban all visitors. The Sanctuary was re–opened briefly in 2000 for a special millennial expedition, of which Hugh Thomson was a part. Here, he weaves the story of his own journey together with those who have gone before him. Hugh Thomson, an award–winning filmmaker, has led several expeditions to the Peruvian Andes, which he recorded in his highly acclaimed work The White Rock: An Exploration of the Inca Heartland.
