Our Journey from Tibet: Based on a True Story
Laurie Dolphin (au); Nancy Jo Johnson (ph); Dalai Lama (ad). A moving account of one little girlís courageous escape from Tibet. With only a paid guide & a group of other children for co., 9-year-old Sonam takes a dangerous & illegal journey through the mountains of the Himalaya. She is leaving her parents & her village behind -- perhaps forever -- so that she can go to school. Many thousands of children have taken this same journey during the past several decades. Under Chinese occupation, school in Tibet is too expensive for most families, & all traditional Tibetan teachings are outlawed. The Tibetan Childrenís Village is a place of refuge for young people to learn modern subjects as well as traditional Tibetan culture & beliefs. Photos capture the beauty of the children, the landscapes, & the Tibetan spirit.
