An unusual adventure story, set down as a memoir (similar to the device used by H. Rider Haggard in "She") which details a year in the life of an Englishman during his time in Tibet looking for his lost brother. Lots of interesting details about Tibetan religious practices are interwoven with a well-told tale centering on the hero, and a young Indian who makes his trip possible. The last part drags a bit (escaping Tibet when the Chinese invade), and at the same time evokes a feeling of anger at the invasion and its aftermath.
