First thus. Octavo (21.5 cm), pp. 312. Green cloth with gilt spine titling, pictorial jacket and endpapers illustrated with map of the Tibetan Plateau. Spine is slightly cocked, bumped at either end, jacket has light edge wear. 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.
