This book tells of life in the remote Himalayan region of Dolpo, on Nepals border with Tibet, through the eyes of Namsel Wangmo, a young girl who grows up to become a great painter about 800 years ago. This is engaging and joyful, full of gentle humor and cultural insight, not to mention a small dose of feminine victory, as the protagonist is a young woman.
