Sponsored by Australian Geographic , Wilby, an aspiring Australian photojournalist, walked 1500 bleak miles across the nearly empty Tibetan landscape. Starting and ending in Lhasa, she survivedthrough the cheerful good will of local Tibetansthe decamping of her baggage donkey, floods that made a 600-mile detour necessary, and authorities who couldn't read her Chinese travel permits. Wilby's account of a Tibet not seen by the average tourist belongs in travel collections as well as among stories about long-distance walks. (Most photos not seen.) Paula M.
