Dreams of Snow Land
Countless people have long been fascinated by and dreamed about the wonderful land of Tibet in China. The author has visited Tibet 19 times within 16 years, covering almost every county, city and a great number of villages, experiencing its unique traditional festivals, celebrations, religious activities and major events, forging an indissoluble bond with Tibet in the process.
During each of his Tibetan journeys, the author faithfully recorded what he saw, heard and felt, sparing no effort or danger to photograph the magnificent natural scenery of Tibet'ssnow-covered land, its exotic local customs and conditions, its solemn scenes of Buddhist worship. This book is based on that material, arranged as 14 topics whose fine text and lavish photography present precious moments and places that lie beyond the easy reach of ordinary people.
