Warmly welcomed, he eventually became tutor to the Dalai Lama, teenaged god-king of the theocratic nation. The authors vivid descriptions of Tibetan rites and customs capture its unique traditions before the Chinese invasion in 1950, which prompted Harrers departure. A 1996 epilogue details the genocidal havoc wrought over the past half-century.
