INTRODUCTION to TIBETAN NOMADS WORLD


    Click on the image to start the slide show.



    The images appearing in this slide presentation were sought for the preparation of the book, “Tibet: Enduring Spirit, Exploited Land” by Robert Z. Apte and Andres R. Edwards, with a Poem by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. It was first published by Heartsfire Press in 1998, with the Second Edition and expanded edition, published by Authors House in 2004.

    Photographers from many parts of the world freely supplied the images. The goal in obtaining these images for the book was to provide the reader with a picture of the lives of the nomads and semi-nomadic Tibetans who occupy one of the most remote and harsh terrains on earth. The photographers who traveled to those mountains and high deserts were able to capture the essence of the nomadic life and culture. As one will see in viewing these images, in spite of the hardships, the intrepid nomads, with few resources available have evolved a capacity to survive. a style of living and a joy of life that illuminates the incredible capacity of human species to thrive.

    We wish to give credit and thanks to the follow photographers who contributed to his book: John Ackerly, Barabara Bussell, Andres Edwards, Carol Elchert, Kevin Kling, Michael McGee, Bradley Rowe, Galen Rowell, Philip Sugden.
