author's Tibetan adventures as she evolves from solo
traveler to expedition leader. Her mission: to save the
ancient Buddhist murals of Baiya Monastery. To reach her
goal she travels a long and circuitous path: raising
funds, getting permission from the Chinese government,
assembling an international team, and leading four
expeditions by bus, truck, and horse caravan
to Baiya Monastery. Along the way she meets a memorable parade of characters, and surmounts obstacles ranging from bad glue to blizzards, from politics to policemen. Her book is an insiders look at a remote and little known part Tibet, her story an inspiration to those who cherish challenge and adventure.
