Klappentext

Canyon Sam has made a miracle of a journey, and written a miracle of a book. Following her roots to China many years ago, she found instead Tibet as her spiritual home. She committed herself to a life of engaged Buddhism, working for human rights. Now in Sky Train, she guides the reader on a life-changing adventure back to Tibet and an epoch of cataclysmic change.--Maxine Hong Kingston
