Description
Young Tibetan Buddhist nun Kunsang marries a monk and starts a family, but the 1950 Chinese invasion of Tibet drives Kunsang and her family from the monastery, in this multi-generational memoir by her granddaughter, activist Yangzom Brauen. As the family flees across the Himalayas and spends years in refugee camps, Kunsang will endure bitter losses, only to find unexpected salvation through her daughter.

"This book paints a vivid picture of Tibetan experience over the last eight decades, one of the most difficult periods in our history. Through the personal stories of three women from one Tibetan family, it recalls the imposition of Chinese rule in Tibet and the subsequent efforts of many Tibetans to preserve their identity and treasured values in exile."—The Dalai Lama

"With unadorned prose that is both searing and laced with verisimilitude, Brauen has written a book centered on the extraordinary journey of her grandmother that is one of both human suffering and perseverance in the face of it. Across Many Mountains is nothing short of a celebration of the human spirit."—Rex Pickett
