"Across Many Mountains"by Yangsom Brauen, is a very interesting and enlightening story about Tibet and it's people. You'll learn about the Buddhist religion and the stree it is undergoing with it's people scattered all over the world. This is a very timely story since the Dalai Lama just recently visited with the president of the United States.
You'll learn that the tight-knit Tibetan family ties are the only thing that helps them weather all the struggles brought about by the Chinese occupation of their lands.
I enjoyed the book very much and would highly recomment it to all my friends.
