As never before told, this book covers the inspiring story of how one man, Gyalwa Rinpoche, a gentle monk and the Dalai Lama of Tibet, shouldered the heavy burden of political leadership of his country in the face of armed invasion by the Chinese Communists. Michael Goodman's moving biography recreates the life of the Dalai Lama to 1959, when he and 100,000 other Tibetans fled into the foothills of northern India, thus preserving their art, science, history and religion at a time when their cultural heritage inside their native Tibet was virtually destroyed.
