Peter Aufschnaiter's Eight Years in Tibet
Orchid Press, 2002 - 208 pages
Through his bestselling Seven Years in Tibet, the world came to know the exploits of Heinrich Harrar. Finally, the amazing tale is told of Harrar's partner in escaping to Tibet, Peter Aufschnaiter. An Austrian agricultural engineer, Aufschnaiter developed a deep love for the Tibetan people, working tirelessly to help improve their lot during a sojourn of nearly eight years on the "Roof of the World." A brilliant linguist, mountaineer, and observer, Aufschnaiter provides us with the most detailed and sensitive record available of the Tibetans and their way of life on the eve of the Chinese invasion.
