"An electrifying, revelatory experience. In it, we learn much about the
lives of Tibetan tribal groups that cannot be found in any academic
treatise." *Victor H. Mair, Professor, University of Pennsylvania,

"A rare insight into an intriguing world of violence and compassion that
has all but disappeared." *Fernanda Pirie, Oxford University*

"A treasure. A window to the past and present of a dynamic Tibetan culture.
A story full of life flowing with harsh reality and vivid
imagination." *Douglas
Duckworth, Florida State University*

"Ethnographic and immediate, Guru's novel brings readers into a world of
Eastern Tibetans generations ago. The spell-binding chain of events echoes
the dynamics of traditional heroic epic and folktale." *Mark Bender, The
