    Title: SNOW LEOPARD
    Author: MATTHIESSEN PETER
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In 1973 (Matthiessen) joined with George Schaller, a field biologist, to Crystal Mountain in the Himalayas, to study the wild blue sheep of the region called bharal. They also hoped to see the rare snow leopard, an almost mythical creature which Schaller once glimpsed on a previous visit. Matthiessen is a student of Zen Buddhism and for his this was as much an inner journey as a field trip. He succeeds well in blending the spiritual with the earthly and his book is an evocative account of a remote and timeless place and its people.
