Peter Mathiessen went on a journey to the Himalaya in the hopes of finding the elusive snow leopard. This difficult pilgrimage in extreme conditions did not go as planned, but in the process the author learned a great deal about the people and the land, and about himself which he describes in an exquisite and poetic prose, A classic in the genre of adventure memoirs.
