Reviews

Precisely the person to explore Tibet... Her accounts of Tibetan religious ceremonies and beliefs are the fullest and best we have. -- The New Yorker * . *
A line of women explorers (have) won adulation in far-flung lands... Perhaps the most extraordinary of all was Alexandra David-Neel, the French-Belgian explorer, who travelled to the closed city of Lhasa, and became a Buddhist mystic in the early 20th century. -- The Times * . *
Wonderfully lucid. -- Alan Watts * . *
A fascinating account of the spiritual training of Tibetan monks and mystics... an intriguing book... A true travel classic that will enchant thinkers and adventurers alike. -- Geographical * . *
David-Neel's trailblazing travels were driven by curiosity and deep-seated Buddhist spirituality... Her writings blend descriptions of extraordinary psychic exercises and Bon sorcery... with accounts of the wonders and rigours of early 20th-century travel in remote regions. -- Wanderlust * . *
