All his life a woodcutter longs to travel and see the world. But he grows old without ever leaving his valley in the mountaine of Tibet.

When he dies, he's suddenly offered the chance to live again, in any form and in any place he likes. The universe with its spectacular array of stars and creatures parades past him. His head spins. Shall he join the animal kingdom or become an exotic dancer? Shall he live in a village or on a distant planet? The reader may ponder along with the woodcutter which choices would be the most rewarding.

Mordicai Gerstein's exquisite mandala-like illustrations and splendid prose tell the story of a man who is offered a universe of possibilities.

The Mountains of Tibet is a tale that will ticle the imagination of young and old -- it is a journey through the diversity of life and the spinning dance of creation.
