Beschreibung

One September, the writer and explorer Peter Matthiessen set out with field biologist George Schaller to journey 250 miles through the Himalayas to the Crystal Mountain on the Tibetan plateau. They wanted to study the wild blue sheep, the bharal, but also hoped to see the snow leopard, a creature so rarely spotted as to be nearly mythical. The Snow Leopard is not only an exquisite book of natural history but an extraordinary account of an inner journey , a 'true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart.'

Vorwort
'Matthiessen's book is a triumph that will outlive him. It is a masterpiece' John Hillaby

Autorentext
Peter Matthiessen was a naturalist, explorer and writer. His works of fiction include At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Far Tortuga and the acclaimed 'Watson Trilogy'. His explorations resulted in many fine works of non-fiction, among them The Snow Leopard, The Cloud Forest and The Tree where Man was Born. He died in 2014, aged 86.

Klappentext

'A beautiful book, and worthy of the mountains he is among' Paul Theroux

One September, writer and explorer Peter Matthiessen set out with field biologist George Schaller to journey 250 miles through the Himalayas to the Crystal Mountain on the Tibetan plateau. They wanted to study the wild blue sheep, the bharal, but also hoped to see the rare snow leopard, an almost mythical creature which Schaller had glimpsed on a previous visit. Matthiessen was a student of Zen Buddhism and for him this was as much an inner journey as a field trip. The resulting book is an extraordinary account of a 'true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart.'

'An evocative account of a remote and timeless place and its people' Sunday Times
