Description

This book is an attempt to speak about the life of Tibetan people in their own homes. The contents are leaved on the author's first hand knowledge of Tibetan life during a residence of nearly twenty years from conversations with his Tibetan acquaintances in their own language.

Shut off from the outer world by their immense mountain barriers Tibet still presents a virgin field of inquiry there has been little change in the life of the people during the last thousand years
