Publisher:Himalayan Map House
Remarks:adventurous book about Nepali culture and Tibetan history
Size:138 x 212 mm
This book details the tragic historical events surrounding the resistance movement of the Tibetan Freedom Fighters, a band of brave soldiers who fought against Chinese occupation of Tibet for over fifteen year. Trained in secrecy at US army bases through a cover CIA operation, they eventually established a base in Mustang, an isolated kingdom in the far reaches of Nepal. An abrupt shift in political climate suddenly left the Tibetan guerrillas abandoned. When juxtaposed against recent US policy, it echoes an all too familiar precedent. This novel is a commemoration of their remarkable yet heartbreaking tale.
