Penned following WW II, this is a journal, if you will, by a German who flees incarceration in India by the British at the onset of the "big war." As such, it becomes not merely an account of his wanderings and experiences in Tibet, but somewhat of an adventure and a clear picture of life in this forbidden land. Although quite dated, it yet remains a compelling recount of the drama of the times.

If you have seen the movie with Brad Pitt, you will want to read this book. Even if you haven't,what an amazing story.

First published in 1953. Really interesting adventure story, especially the first part, his journey to Lhasa.

I tried really hard to read this book. I carried it around with me for a month, but I just couldn't finish it. The writing is very practical, and bland. And the author talks more about Tibetan politics than about actual events that took place. If you're a fan of the movie like I am, the you will be very disappointed. When they say "based on the book", what they really mean is "this movie weakly resembles the book."
