Mark Boyden set out from Ireland in the Spring of 1981 to explore the two western-most provinces of old Tibet, Ladakh and Zanskar, and to record their old traditions before they were inexorably eroded by modernity. Traveling with a horse and his friend Paddy, Mark Boyden was one of the first Westerners to visit this closed kingdom. In this book, he has written a delightful travelogue of his remarkable expedition - the challenges of the landscape, the encounters with a succession of characters, and the details of life in Zanskar, in what Dervla Murphy calls in her Foreword, "a travel book in the classic tradition."
