Alison Wright is an award-winning photojournalist who has lived among exiled Tibetans in Nepal and India for over a decade. In this extraordinary collection of full color photographs, she has charted their lives and the daunting challenges they face far from home. As you will see looking at the pictures here, the resilient Tibetans have tried to retain the core of their native culture with its distinctive rituals and traditions.

Here is a brief overview of some of the images in the paperback: monks in front of The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, a baby at the Tibetan Children’s Village, a crowd gathered to hear the Dalai Lama’s teachings, a Tibetan woman holding a mala, monks making a sand mandala, a Tibetan nun spinning prayer wheels, shopping in the local food market, and Tashi, the wood carver.
