Among the Tibetans

Bird (1831–1904) recounts her rugged passage through the Himalayas by horseback and her four-month sojourn amid «the pleasantest of people.» Bird's evocative accounts of Tibetan ceremonies, decorations, costumes, and music, along with her vivid descriptions of palaces, temples, and monasteries, offer rare glimpses of a vanished world. 21 black-and-white illustrations.
