Synopsis: Christina Noble was fascinated by the self-sufficient migratory lives of the Gaddi, a shepherding people of Himachal Pradesh in the Himalayas. For a year she travelled with them, following the flocks on their traditional route and camping with them at their grazing grounds. Her journey took her through some of the most dramatic terrain in the world: from the plains of the Punjab up and over the high, snowy passes into Lahoul; through the forested Kulu valley to the broad, well-watered terraces of Kangra, in the shadow of mountains towering 13,000 feet above. It took her from spring through to winter, through all the seasonal changes to landscape and lifestyle. And it took her into the midst of the people who had so irresistibly captured her imagination. As she travelled she began to realise why the Gaddi have survived; how their sense of themselves has developed and adapted through the centuries to meet the pressures of today. She came to understand the cultural structure underlying their lives; their history, myths and customs. She made friends with individual characters, and hospitable Deori in Gadderan became her village home. With unsentimental affection, Christina Noble describes the people and places that have become part of her own personal mythology. Illustrated with her evocative photographs, "Over the High Passes" is warmly written, beautifully observed: an intensely vivid and detailed insight into a way of life that is at once harsh and romantic - and unique.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, London, 1987. Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. OVER THE HIGH PASSES A Year in the Himalayas with the Migratory Gaddi Shepherds. Christina Noble. Collins, London. 1987 First Edition ISBN 0002177897 208pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in fine unmarked condition, tight, white, bright and square. The price clipped dust wrapper is also in fine condition. A Highland Scot, Christina Noble is married to an Indian and has two children. Nevertheless for the better part of a year she is wandering about the Indian highlands in Himachal Pradesh by herself, or rather accompanied by two male Buddhist guides - who are sometimes servants, sometimes friends - with no mention or thought for her family somewhere down south. Over the High Passes is a fascinating story and the pictures of a shepherd's life are well-drawn and touching and, for those who are over-read on Tibet, it provides an interesting and loving insight into a small corner of the Himalayan world.
