What the community says about Seven Years in Tibet
- "Seven Years in Tibet is the memoir by the explorer turned prisoner of war Heinrich Harrer. Harrer was captured in India during the second World War and eventually escaped by transversing the Himalayas and crossing into Tibet. It's a great read for both fans of history and adventure. "
- "Seven Years in Tibet is a memoir piece that follows the author as he escapes from a concentration camp in India and crosses the Himalayas into Tibet to become the Dalai Llama's Tutor. It's quite engaging and shows the dichotomy of the social classes as well as the amount of prejudiced, bigotry, and unfairness of life in these times. I highly recommend it as it was very enlightening."
- "This is a vivid memoir that depicts the difficult journey that the author has reaching the Tibetan capital and offers his views and observations of Tibetan life. Harrer does a marvelous job giving his perspective on the Tibetan culture. A truly outstanding adventure story."
