"An elegant, informative and unusual book, one that brings Zurick's years of research as a geographer to bear on the sacred landscape of the Himalayas and enriches this deep understanding with glorious photographs." -- Mark Turin, director of the Yale Himalaya Initiative and the Digital Himalaya and the World Oral Literature Projects
"There is no book like this one. Zurick provides images distilled from a life of travel, scholarship, and residence in the region. He is one of the premiere cultural geographers of the Himalyan region, and it is the joining of this scholarship with an artist's eye, a photographer's skills, that makes this book work so well." -- Tom Fricke, author of Himalyan Households: Tamang Demography and Domestic Processes
""Zurick's photographic pilgrimage reveals to us with impeccable clarity the timeless beauty of the changing Himalayan sacred landscape."--Kevin Bubriski, author of Portraits of Nepal and Nepal 1975-2011" --
""Change has been running rampant in Himalayan countries for decades now, and it takes a continuous and determined effort to capture those changes. David Zurick's vast experience throughout the Himalaya and his dedication to clear-eyed documentation give him a unique perspective on these shifts. Not shying away from jarring cultural contrasts, his work captures the extraordinary juxtapositions that characterize life in the Himalaya today. As various Himalayan landscapes continue to evolve, we are very fortunate to have his clarity of vision to capture the things that were and the things that appear in altogether new forms."--Paul Kallmes, mountaineer and author of Summit" --
""There is a Zen quality to this book I really like. The quality of David's photographs has to do with his artistic eye, for sure, but it is an eye nourished by an intimate knowledge of the place. This book is born from the fascination of the author with this part of the world. Above all, it is a love story. You hear the silence, feel the wind, the cold, the peace, and the magic... then you begin to understand why such places have drawn so many fine dreamers and adventurers for centuries. How can one resist such magic?"--Eric Valli, filmmaker and author of Himalaya (from the foreword)" --
