A fresh, rich, urgent report on the largest wildlife expedition to visit the Himalayas and its stalking ground, the more than 20,000-foot deep Arun Valley in far eastern Nepal--which harbors five climatic zones (tropical to alpine), more species of birds than the continental U.S., and quite possibly that mysterious half-man, half-ape, the yeti. But this Shangri-la is worse than endangered, ornithologist and expedition co-leader Cronin warns, it's threatened with ecological collapse.
