Magicians and saints in Tibet

by Alexandra David-Neel


A unique travelogue of Central Asia at the beginning of the 20th century, when Tibet was still independent. At the beginning of the 20th century, the French orientalist Alexandra David-Néel traveled to Tibet and lived there for over a decade in monasteries and hermitages. Her report is fascinating because - like no other European before her - she gets involved with life and the secret teachings of the Lamaists while maintaining a kind of scientific and sometimes ironic distance.
