Description
To Western adventurers, the Himalayas represent the ultimate test of wilderness climbing—a challenge to be surmounted as a proof of skill and courage in their otherwise unhindered lives. To Tibetans, however, the mountains offer a slim chance of escape from the systematic oppression imposed on them by the Chinese government. International correspondent Jonathan Green explores the 2006 killing of 17-year-old Tibetan nun Kelsang Namtso—gunned down by Chinese border guards as she attempted to flee into Nepal—which occurred in full view of a climbing party at Advance Base Camp on Cho Oyu Mountain.

"A gripping tale of routine murder that would have gone unreported but for the fact that a group of Western climbers were silent witnesses to the killing of a young Tibetan woman attempting to cross the border.... Green has traveled to the region to research the story, he's interviewed the witnesses, other refugees and even the Dalai Lama to tell this shocking and complicated story."—Bookseller

"Freelance journalist Green's earnest chronicle trumpets his disdain for the exploitation of the Himalayas by rich, macho mountaineering novices, his hatred of Chinese Communists for human rights violations, and his reverence for Tibetan culture."—Publishers Weekly
