Octavo (23 cm), pp. 338. Signed by author on half title page. Dark blue boards with silver spine titling, blue medallion. Pictorial jacket and endpapers (maps of the Tibetan Plateau and Inner Dolpo). Jacket and boards with very slight corner wear, jacket with a few small closed tears and foxing on underside. Reviewers critiqued this double National Book Award-winner (1979 and 1980), for the way Matthiessen folded natural history, personal tragedy and religion into a travel memoir (Roberson, I295-347), but the book proved to be a forerunner in the nature writing genre, combining memoir and the natural world, and a unparalleled classic of narrative nonfiction. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
