Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer ISBN 13: 9780874778885

ISBN 10: 0874778883

Paperback; New York: Tarcher, 1997-08-25; ISBN-13: 978-0874778885

In this vivid memoir that has sold millions of copies worldwide, Heinrich Harrer recounts his adventures as one of the first Europeans ever to enter Tibet. Harrer was traveling in India when the Second World War erupted. He was subsequently seized and imprisoned by British authorities. After several attempts, he escaped and crossed the rugged, frozen Himalayas, surviving by duping government officials and depending on the generosity of villagers for food and shelter. Harrer finally reached his ultimate destination-the Forbidden City of Lhasa-without money, or permission to be in Tibet. But Tibetan hospitality and his own curious appearance worked in Harrer?s favor, allowing him unprecedented acceptance among the upper classes. His intelligence and European ways also intrigued the young Dalai Lama, and Harrer soon became His Holiness?s tutor and trusted confidant. When the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1950, Harrer and the Dalai Lama fled the country together. This timeless story illuminates Eastern culture, as well as the childhood of His Holiness and the current plight of Tibetans. It is a must-read for lovers of travel, adventure, history, and culture. A motion picture, under the direction of Jean-Jacques Annaud, will feature Brad Pitt in the lead role of Heinrich Harrer.

Description:
New York: Tarcher, 1982 Octavo, softcover, crease to cover and endpaper missing else VG. 329 pp. Map of Tibet and India on frontis. Foreword by Dalai Llama. A great book about the independent Tibet, and its being swallowed into China! ! Translated from German by Richard Graves. Introduction by Peter Fleming. Harrer was a German interned in British India from the beginning of World War II. Finally in 1943 he escaped from that internment and, following a lengthy travel across 'the roof of the world' he wound up in Lhasa penniless and in rags. Met with kindness in Lhasa, he was not expelled back to India. Instead he was allowed to stay in Tibet, to work for the government (he spoke passable Tibetan by this time) and to tutor the young Dalai Lama. When the Chinese Communists invaded Tibet in 1950 Harrer was forced to part from this lonely, able and affectionate youth.. Very Good/Unknown.
