An epic photographic journey across the entire Himalayan range. Over the course of a decade, the author trekked more than 2,000 miles through Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and North India, creating an intimate and sensitive portrait of Himalayan landscape and culture. Himalayan Odyssey is a journey into a spiritual way of life far removed from the modern world. It is also a documentary of remarkable depth and insight - and a poignant record of fragile cultures in transition. A lavishly produced volume of the highest quality, Himalayan Odyssey is 128 pages of spectacular photographs, insightful text and extensive captions, all exquisitely printed on heavyweight art paper. Hard cover, cloth bound. Oversized 10.5 x 15 inch landscape format. Introduction by Pico Iyer. Jacket comments by Martin Scorsese and Peter Matthiessen.
