Description

"Colin Thubron is the intrepid, resourceful and immensely talented writer who has made a career out of going to out of the way places and then writing brilliantly about them."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

"Thanks to Thubron, we encounter a world which, in its beauty and awe, exceeds our imagination." --Ryszard Kapuscinski, author of Shah of Shahs and Imperium

New York Times bestselling author Colin Thubron returns with a moving, intimate, and exquisitely crafted travel memoir recounting his pilgrimage to the Hindu and Buddhist holy mountain of Kailas--whose peak represents the most sacred place on Earth to roughly a quarter the global population. With echoes of Peter Matthiessen's The Snow Leopard, Peter Hessler's Country Driving, and Paul Theoroux's Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Thubron's follow up to his bestselling Shadow of the Silk Road will illuminate, interest, and inspire anyone interested in traveling the world or journeying into the soul.
