"After his escape from a British prisoner-of-war camp in India, Heinrich Harrer spent seven years among the Tibetan People and recounted his experiences in this memoir called by the Indian novelist and travel writer Santa Rama Rau 'one of the grandest and most incredible adventure stories I have ever read.' Harrer became the unofficial secular tutor to the Dalai Lama when His Holiness was fourteen years old. He and the Dalai Lama remained lifelong friends. Seven Years in Tibet offers rare insights into Tibet's mysticism and beauty which Harrer's photogravures, produced from the original negatives, further illuminate" (Publisher).
