Far Beyond the Garden Gate: Alexandra David-Neels Journey to Lhasa by Don Brown

In her time, Alexandra David-Neel was the most famous woman in France. She had traveled extensively in China and Tibet and, in 1924, was the first Western woman ever to enter Tibets forbidden capital, Lhasa. Alexandra was a self-taught Buddhist scholar and spoke Tibetan flawlessly. And she did it all as a mature womanshe was in her mid-fifties when she arrived in Lhasa. Not only is Alexandra David-Neels story one of high adventure, of trekking through snow-choked mountain passes and wild encounters on the Tibetan tablelands, but it is also about a prolific writer and passionate advocate of Tibetan culture. Far Beyond the Garden Gate reveals an unforgettable lifes journey with vibrant, graceful prose and stunning illustrations.
